God Bows to Math, Wilberforces

With support from Wilberforces and Freudoids.

After a steady number of EPs and splits, across a wide variety of formats, Auckland’s best noise merchants and long-time Muzai act God Bows to Math are finally ready to release their first full-length album.

The eponymous release, out November 14th is three years of hard work from the group finally come to fruition. In true God Bows to Math fashion though, it wasn’t an easy process…

Originally recorded with regular Muzai engineer Daniel Speight, the album was intended to be release in early 2011. One hard drive failure and Speight’s return to the U.K. found the band once again at a loose end.

Picking themselves back up saw the group turn to, of all places, Whanganui to re-record the album with Warner Emery (Double Ya D, ex-Phoenix Foundation). It proved a priceless experience, with the region’s rich history of noisy guitar bands emboldening them to strip back their sound a little more.

Where Whanganui may not have been an obvious choice initially, getting the album mastered by the hallowed Chicago Mastering Service (run by Bob Weston and Jason Ward) was a long-standing goal of the band. It was the indelible touches from Jason Ward that truly gave the band the polished (or rather, suitably rough) quality they have long aspired to attain.

It shows; God Bows to Math meshes the group’s latest works such as the moody “Slow Decline” and “Paper Trails” (featuring vocals and guitar from Postures front-man Michael Havell) with their older work from previous releases. An amalgamation of the tried and tested with the new and exciting, which has allowed the band to proverbially stretch their legs – allowing for tracks you may not have expected the emerge from the group.
