It's not fair at all to label Long Long Long's sweet and melodic music as math rock, but being an American, I'm bound to my duties to simplify and reduce the subtleties of our neighbors up north to simple tropes, assumptions, and moose jokes.

“You'll Not Guess Who I Met in Minnesota” comes highly recommended as a feat of well-crafted long-form song craft.
