Cleft – My New Favourite Band

Here’s two tracks from my latest band crush Cleft a two piece turbo-prog/math rock band from Manchester. What I dislike about them is that they were splitting up even as I ‘discovered’ them. What I like about them is the huge sound they get out of two instruments, the odd time signatures, the clever, nuanced arrangements (reminiscent of System Of A Down), the funky Rage Against The Machine type riffs and the wit and humour contained in their music. Here’s Frankenstein (live) from their last record Wrong and Trapdoor (a studio version) from their first Whale-Bone.
