Tonto



Hmm. Math Rock. I remember when it used to be called "Post Rock", and the likes of Tortoise, Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky ruled. The same is there pretty much with Math Rock, though there's a few extras at the party. Battles are one of the most interesting, with their blend of guitar white noise married to subtle electronics. I had the pleasure of seeing them at Futuresonic in 2006, and they were one of my highlights of the festival. They've got a new video out for Tonto at the moment, which with the sound off carries an Alien atmosphere to it. The track itself is full of proggy elements, and while it's a challenge, it ultimately pays off in a satisfying way. Check it out.
