It has to break your heart as a math rock band to hear a band like Dore Mear Beon that plays so much tighter and has such a better aesthetic than yours. The only thing worse? Every instrument was played by one guy!

Dore Mear Beon is Andrew Sagriff - on vocals, on drums, on guitar, on bass - and it all comes together in a math rock masterpiece that is cleaner and more cohesive than a sea of other post-rock / math rock bands.

"Bimbos, Bozos, and Buffons" is a stand-out track with an elegant restraint that lets the pauses between notes ring out as strongly as the crystal-clear guitar work. There's no mush of misused guitar distortion, no eleven-minute-long loud-soft-loud noodling, just an uncluttered climb through a geometric painting in an art gallery that is thankfully more Minus The Bear than HORSE the band.
