i've decided to make a thread combining the two genres since i haven't met a whole lot of people who are very into either one.
if you happen to be one of these people, write down your favorite bands! let's be friends!
here are some of my favorites (a few of them aren't fully considered emo or math-rock, but close enough):
indian summer, portaits of past, neil perry, i hate myself, still life, la quiete, funeral diner, saetia, raein, pg.99, rites of spring.
don caballero, cap'n jazz, algernon cadwallader, american football, maps & atlases, little kingdoms, rooftops, pennines, giraffes? giraffes!, ghosts and vodka, piglet, toe, sharks keep moving, the one up downstairs.
