Like So

This past week has contained a loss of one of the bigger names that consistently use guitar tapping, as the lead singer of This Town Needs Guns has quit the band to be with family. Though the band can still possibly recover, it remains to be seen whether the band and their new vocalist can ever return to the greatness of Animals. Now, Like So really seems to want to This Town Needs Guns, but other than the guitar tapping, they really aren't that similar. They're poppier, and they stick to more conventional song structures. There are some time signature changes, but they aren't as prevalent or technical as This Town Needs Guns. The vocals are reminiscent of a rougher Stu, but they do not make the band a perfect replacement. However, Like So is still extremely talented when you look past the comparisons, and you simply just need to enjoy the mathy-pop band. You can download the band's new EP Has A Pajama Party right here for free.

  1. I love mathy-pop bands. I like it when bands sound sort of like pre-algebra but not really.
