Have you heard of the new band Black Midi? Their debut is crushing and totally innovative. Check it out if you haven't.

If you have heard them, how would you consider them in relation to prog? I think they're certainly progressive, but not in the classic (Yes, Genesis, etc.) sense, though their song "953" gives me major Schizoid vibes.

Here's a link: https://youtu.be/WsBhNRITtdk

Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)

Good 1! I think i had listened to 1 track before. Well, math rock is a suitable label for them. Btw, I think u'll like this video: http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2reuQyLoZM

It is if you're not familiar with This Heat and Slint This band is basically one plus another (minus hooks)

Eh, maybe Tweez era Slint, but definitely not Spiderland, and I also don't think This Heat is a great comparison either, nor do I think any of these bands really have a whole lot of hooks in the traditional sense. I think they most sound like this specific Tera Melos live session:

No idea what song, and not sure they've won the Hyundai Mercury Music Prize I am watching but wow!
That was actually quite impressive so looking forward to getting into the album!
