I discovered Math the Band through the “related artists” feature of Spotify earlier this year, while listening to Atom and his Package. If you ever felt Adam didn’t rock out enough and used way too few computer games sounds (and could have benefited from adding a lot of female backup vocals), Math the Band may be your thing. Then again, it’s not for everyone. Music with a sense of humor is a big no-no to a lot of people. I love it though*.
One thing I really like about Math the Band is that when Kevin formed it as a solo project in his early teens, he had a pin that said “Math” on his backpack, so he figured that if he named the band thus, he already had some merch for it.
Since I first started listening to them, they’ve been selling nothing but ugly merch, way too arty and childish for my tastes. The other day, though, I discovered this shirt in their online shop and hit “buy” before I had time for second thoughts. I’ll give you an update once it arrives. In the meantime, check out the band, but listen on Grooveshark, as Spotify don’t have nearly all their stuff.
* This is the first band I have ever bought leagal downloads from, that’s how much I like them.
