One of my favorite ways to discover new music is to take a band I love, find them on MySpace and dig through their top friends and then their top friends and get a few layers deep and within 30 minutes you’ve found some awesome new band with 330 plays. Mathemagic are one of those bands that you’d come across this way and judging by their top friends (Memory House, The xx, CFCF, Toro Y Moi, Washed Out) this is a band I should have found a lot sooner.
Either way, I’m just happy to have found them at all. With only three songs available the band has absolutely wrapped me up in their gorgeous swirls of electronic sounds, warm vocals, programmed drums, reverbed guitars and hand claps.
The Ontario duo is quickly burning up the blogosphere with these two jams below.
You can hear a third track on their MySpace. Look for a 5 song EP coming shortly.
