thanks so much man! My favorites on the first listen were Pachuca Sunrise, and Secret Country. What is a good record to start at for these dudes?
minus the bear is the band that really got me into math rock and that sort of "style". erin tate, the drummer, is one of my personal drumming influences.
each of their records has it's own particular place in my heart. check out "menos el oso" for a great poppy-math record. "planet of ice" is a great record their showcases their technical precision and cohesiveness as a band. "highly refined pirates" was their first LP, and is really a solid record.
they also have a few EP's that are very, very good. i would stray away from listening to their latest full release "Omni" until you see what you think of their other records. Omni
, while being a solid record, isn't really that groundbreaking for MTB.
