Artist of the Day: This Town Needs Guns

This Town Needs Guns makes accessible math-rock. This is somewhat of a contradiction, since math rock is concerned with more complex musical practices, and this makes the British group's style surprising. How do their songs sound so comfortable, when they're constructed with the oddest time signatures in mind? It's a respectable skill this group has, and one you should acquaint yourself with if you haven't already.

A recommended starting point for This Town Needs Guns would be their latest record, Animals. The album contained many notable tracks, but perhaps the most memorable one is "26 Is Dancier Than 4." Check it out, and if you like what you hear, you should proceed to the rest of the album!
