Esteemed rock critic/virulent douche Robert Christgau once wrote that "virtuosos shouldn't show off—it's bad manners and bad art." He may as well have been referring to math rock, the most hopelessly masturbatory sub-genre in existence. Instrumental band Bearcubbin's latest full-length, Girls with Fun Haircuts (their first with bassist Patrick Dougherty, formerly of Soft Skills, whose contributions are nothing short of immense), is among the few exceptions to this rather unfortunate rule. Bearcubbin's previous efforts intimated varying degrees of potential, but not until now have they successfully been able to synthesize bona fide songwriting chops ("Master Cylinder," in particular, is catchy as fuck) and unavoidable fun with the genre's signature geometric, self-gratifying technicality—something very few of their peers even dare attempt.
