This Town Needs Guns - Animals

Recently came across this band, and I've been unimaginably impressed. Best math rock band around? The guitarwork will send shivers down your spine, and the songs are brilliantly crafted. Can't forget the cute album art. Or you could go listen to some powerviolence.

The Mad Conductor - Renegade Space Rock

Ex-lead singer of No Cash's hip-hop project. It's truly eclectic, stylistically and lyrically. Really clever rhymes coupled with tons of mixed genres and influences. In the first track alone, you'll have first wave ska, funky bass lines, what seems to be an accordion, and a constant unexplainable genius that continues throughout the whole album. Or if you already know this, enjoy my favorite album by them.

1. Venom
2. Bayou Moon Stompin'
3. Reactor Number 4
4. All Things Considered
5. Mr. Cacciatore
6. Feed the Beast
7. Destapadores
8. Cot in a Wormhole
9. Delirium Aquarium
