Organ Thing of The Day: Well this is sounding big today, Velociter is the third single from Poly-Math’s forthcoming much anticipated record, Zenith is due for release on November 18th. Find the track here and well, wrap your ears as well as your eyes around this one, the Brighton tag team are clearly on top top form, that sax is adding so much to their brew. For those who don’t know, “Poly-Math are an instrumental Prog/Math band based in Brighton and London, and have been a mainstay at avant-garde music Festival, ArcTanGent since 2013”, we’d add that they are one of the very best live bands out there, here you go, grab a slice of this video, this video will tell you…
You can find the album and the details you need over on Bandcamp
“Zenith is the 4th record by instrumental prog band, Poly-Math. 8 tracks of punchy riffs, guitar/sax battling melodies and tight, complex rhythms that capture the band’s massive live energy. Recorded at The Ranch Production House in Nursling with producer Mark Roberts (Delta Sleep, Toska, Black Peaks, The Physics House Band), Zenith represents a clear development for the band. The first to be written and recorded as a 5 piece with the addition of Chris Olsen on saxophone, Zenith is concise and consistent, focussing on complex instrumentation, huge, crowd pleasing riffs and diverse poly-rhythms. This record moves away from the band’s previous experimentation with expansive soundscapes and field recordings, and instead features concentrated, succinct songs, all around 4 minutes long, focussed on the signature Poly-Math playing style and riffery”. We’ll add our own thoughts on the new album if and when we get our dirty mitts on a copy.
There’s a launch gig for the Poly-math album in London on November 12th with a rather tasty line up, it happens over in Walthamstow, details here, a Chaos Theory gig featuring Thumpermonkey and A Formal Horse.
