Houdan the Mystic – Archer’s Jamboree

Mathematic power trio from Richmond, VA make music that has every right to be considered technical and expert-like in its execution, yet it doesn’t sound cold, austere or dryly academic. It’s math rock, yet it retains the warm, human feel some math rock bands lose in favor of scientific precision. The sound is close to earth and accessible, yet complex and multi-layered. What Battles might have sounded like if it consisted of talented small town folk with a feel of “local” exp rock instead of avant-garde experimentators.
