Taiwanese math rock.

Sorry it took LA2 quoting you and saying "minimalist" to make me even listen to this... Minimalism is a thing with me.

 

Don't know if I'd call it minimalist. More like jazz. Funky-Jazz. My infant-like understanding of Jazz. That cute girl sure can play bass tho! Obvs reminds you of Les C. !

 

 

What exactly is Math rock? 2nd time I've seen you say that.

Good point. I was only employing "minimalist" as preferable to "math."

A good Japanese group that is more truly minimalist (Steve Reich, etc.) is Maison Book Girl. But I didn't post them at the time b/c they don't play their own instruments on stage like ElephantGym. There are several good MV's on YouTube, some of them with subtitles.

Lots more than two, for some reason it comes up a lot, I even made a Math Rock joke in the Diaz thread.  The funny thing is I'm more of a dabbler than I am an aficionado.

Anyway off to Wiki for their definition.

Math rock is a style of indie rock[2] that emerged in the late 1980s in the United States, influenced by post-hardcore,[3] progressive rock bands such as King Crimson, and 20th century minimal music composers such as Steve Reich. Math rock is characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures (including irregular stopping and starting), counterpoint, odd time signatures, angular melodies, and extended, often dissonant, chords. It bears similarities to post-rock

By King Crimson they are talking LTIA and beyond, not the early stuff.  Tool can either be viewed as an influence or an early example.

Quote

Whereas most rock music uses a 4/4 meter (however accented or syncopated), math rock frequently uses non-standard time signatures such as 7/8, 11/8, or 13/8, or features constantly changing meters based on various groupings of 2 and 3. This rhythmic complexity, seen as mathematical in character by many listeners and critics, is what gives the genre its name.

I'll also agree with your comment that Elephant Gym sounded kinda Jazzy, I think a fair bit of Math Rock has that feel in parts.

A lot of math rocks bands don't have a vocalist and the ones that do still tend to have a lot of instrumental songs.

That's all RIGHT up my alley. One of the reasons I love Tool is the different rhythms they play. They'll have a metronomic beat throughout a whole song but will have three COMPLETELY different rhythms to that beat.

This Town Needs Guns

These guys are Math with some alternative and emo influences.  Pretty vocally but the guitarist is top notch.

Six-fo Impala I think. Exactly like the first (drawing) picture in the video.
