hella - there's no 666 in outer space

album: there's no 666 in outer space
genre: math rock
country: us
year: 2007

Hella are guitarist Spencer Seim and drummer Zach Hill. They play frenetic, improvisational math rock. For There's No 666... they recruited another guitarist, a bassist, and a vocalist and put together some super unusual and interesting songs. I wasn't sold on this album the first time i heard it, mostly for having been caught off guard by the vocals, but songs like "the Ungrateful Dead" and "the Hand That Rocks the Cradle" are hard not to listen to on repeat for half-hours at a time.

check it out.
