Bonus MP3: Dear Human -- "Waiting"

Gonna go the honesty route here and openly admit that, quite unfortunately, we don't really know all that much about Denton's Dear Human--except that the four-piece hates the Insane Clown Posse and people named Steve, apparently, and that it missed its opening slot for HEALTH at NX35, which we were sponsoring, natch.

But we do know this: The band will be hosting a release show for its debut, self-titled , seven-track EP at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios in Denton on Friday night.

And now we kinda wish we knew a little bit more; the disc is an impressive collection of instrumental math-rock, boasting influences from the often opposing post-hardcore and ambient genre realms. It's kinda head-spinning. And calming at the same time.

So, yeah, our interest has been piqued--and, in turn, we're gonna try and dig up some more info on the band to pass along to you, dear readers. ASAP.

In the meantime, the folks at Gutterth, who are releasing the disc, have been kind enough to offer us up an mp3 to pass along for your listening and downloading pleasure. Check out "Waiting" after the jump.

Bonus mp3:

Dear Human -- "Waiting"

Dear Human -- "Waiting"




This one kinda eschews the ambient element that other tracks on the EP boast. But it also might be the most impressive track on the album, thanks to its near-disregard for any tangible time structure.
