But, for Dear Human's members, all of whom have been playing within the math-rock genre for some time now, staying on point with the ever-changing time structures of their songs has almost become a second-nature thing. As you'll hear the band explain in the above clip, it's just kind of "what happens" when they write and play their material together.

In the meantime, if you're free tonight, come on by our El Sibil studios (122 E. 5th St. in Oak Cliff) for this evening's taping. Tonight, we welcome The Orbans into the mix. The band will be performing an all-acoustic set for us, too. Should be a good time. Things will get rolling a little after 7 o'clock. See you there.
