4 stars Exciting guitar-based mathrock quartet that spiral and twist their way through a heavy progressive universe that has only just begun to expand, pushing its way through the post-prog throngs. Representing the San Diego brand of Math, this pair of guitars, bass, and drums whack it up something mean and give the giants of this style, like Don Caballero, a run for their money with notably high musicianship, fresh ideas in the arithmetic of hard knocks, and a heated pace that is hard to follow.

Also in evidence is a stiff shot of King Crimson which gives them a more varied palate, though this influence should not be over-estimated and is more conceptual than derivative; these four young musicians stand rather firmly in a mathrock camp and represent the flowering of this kinetic, sometimes frantic musical style, deceptive in its honesty and played with the passion of garage music but the contemplative brow of Prog. A real winner.
