Odd Dates - 2014 - File Dump

Odd Dates is a two piece band from Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. File Dump is their new EP. Odd Dates play an angular, melodic, post-hardcore informed brand of math rock. These two songs set a pretty high standard, think in the area of The Reptilian and Animal Faces and you won't be far off. Wu Wei conjures an off kilter melody and rides that into the dust while This Basement is Most Definitely Haunted almost gets lost in the riffing. Easily one of the best EPs of the year. If you like your punk rock with some math and emo, Odd Date's File Dump will serve very well. Thanks to Manic Compression.
