Math rock… you love it; you hate it. It forces you to consider things like “paradiddles,” “three-over-four hemiolas” and “five-string basses.” But there’s a sizable segment of music geeks that don’t mind a little brainwork with their music, and Bay Area three-piece A Minor Forest challenged ears through the ’90s. While the band has always given listeners plenty to think about, there are also enough guitar fireworks and noisy bits to keeps things fun and loose. The band has just returned from a 15-year hiatus, which—carry the one—calculates to a long time. By all accounts they’re still killing it live, and the recent reissue of their 1996 debut Flemish Altruism is a good reminder that through all the nimble playing there’s always been lots for listeners to sink their teeth into.
