Anyone else check them out besides myself and Frank the Tank?..I'm becoming pretty addicted to their album this week. Not a bad track on it. The way they use cello is maybe my favorite part of their music. They remind me a little of The Stiletto Formal in that way.

http://myspace.com/grammatics

call this the 1st big curveball/unknown band for myself for 2009.

Early fave's:

4 The Vague Archive
5 Broken Wing
8 Polar Swelling
9 Rosa Flood
10 Cruel Tricks of the Light

a couple of songs, the vocals sound a lot like Imogen Heap. I guess if people struggle with them, they just were something I have gotten used to. Although I can't deny, at times their singer sounds like the singer from Deas Vail too.

Been letting many people check these guys out over the past weeks. Like you said, not a bad song on the album. Highly recommended.

Album is fucking ace... made me almost completely forget about everything I was also listening to... It's awesome that they can combine such an amazing songwrting with powerfull riffs on breaks that remind you of matt bellamy etc.
Already started tabbing some of the songs.

Production is top-notch especially. it's also really diverse as a whole, and that's always good.

I am finding a radio edit for "The Vague Archive" and "New Franchise."

'Time Capsules and The Greater Truth', new song off the new Shadow Committee single, I guess. What a surprise, it's good.

Sad news guys... Grammatics debut LP (last year "other" best CD) sold less than 5000 copies. The band is splitting up at the end of august after recording one last EP and going for a short farewell tour in England.

If you like them you can help them to record their last songs :

yeah I saw that and posted something in my blog. It sucks, but to me, it's not surprising, as many of the bands I enjoy don't seem to last. I even started a list on rateyourmusic for bands/artists who are broken up or on a long hiatus. It seems they pop up every week or 2 now unfortunately :(

Checked out your list and I think you've got to make a difference when the artist or band member decides to stop, dies, or chooses to go on a new musical path.

Grammatics did not want to quit, they were working on album 2 "writing the best material they ever produced" but they canít pay the bills anymore.

bump.

well, I may try and separate some of the names there. Maybe add another part with "about to be on hiatus" as it wouldn't shock me Menomena may have that happen soon :( (the members hate each other).

but as for Grammatics, they funded the EP and 1 of the tracks "Stalinesque" is available now to stream there.

I think the album was available for download in the end of the pledge (for pledgers obviously)... no leak?

also, stalinesque is a great track... I'll miss these guys so much.
