5 stars 65DaysOfStatic would make a solid contribute to the post-rock underground movement with their debut, "The Fall of Math". The machine syncopated drums, owing more to drum'n'bass and industrial than to math-rock, and the electronic textures, a brood Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails symbiosis, created both a impetuous background atmosphere where the band's dynamic post-rock inter-crusade of guitars, bass and piano moved along. The result is creative and intriguing, flowing with memorable instrumental passages and some solemn atmospheres, whilst the band preferring to move their music from contrast to contrast, between very balanced nuances, than using the genre's more traditional haunting crescendos. Plus, the music achieves to recreate emotionally their foreseen vision of a ideological catastrophe, elicited in the album's first track, being elegantly majestic or disturbing at incisive moments.

The effective formula owed post-rock an exasperating energy, the breakbeat which seemed to be the antithesis to the genre general feeling, but here glowing conceivably well in the band's haphazard layered music. 65 Days of Static's existential anguish, quite different from the other post-rock bands, explodes and dances around, subdued to the general feeling of strange happiness, even moist activeness, in the bear cold.

One of the most gratifying surprises in post-rock genre, and music in general, in these few years. Should deserve more attention. 4,5 stars.
