Simply The Best Out There Now

TTNG has to be the most progressive band on the market, missing out on them is a personal kick in the balls to god.


dont buy this if you're into cookie cutter radio crap. but if you like real music, then this album is definitely worth your money. bear in mind, if you arent used to math rock, then it takes some listening to fully appreciate it (in my opinion). stand out tracks are: baboon, elk, zebra, and 26 is dancier than 4.

breath of fresh air

I find it harder and harder to find bands who I real can "sink my teeth into" and listen to a CD for an extended period of time... it's even harder to continue to follow a band and hope every day for some kind of news on new material.

This Town Needs Guns has easily taken one of those spots; but then again, that's just for me.

Very technical indie rock with a very emotional side. There will definitely be comparisons to Maps & Atlases simply for the "math-rock" side of these guys, though I'd still say TTNG maintains a "pretty" sound throughout many of their songs without getting confusing. If a friend who isn't the most musically apt or open wanted to hear what "math rock" or even what a GOOD "indie" band is, I'd simply throw on "Baboon" and say nothing.

Everyone of these gentlemen is extremely talented; though guitar is easily the high point, the drummer and bassist are masters of their own craft, allowing the guitar to take center stage without taking up the whole thing.

I think what really gets me is that several of these songs are simply 1 guitar track; the guy is just that good. Yes, there are accompanying tracks used and they work beautifully as well, but the rawness of everything - i think - just works for these guys.

This is a full-album purchase. Each song sounds like something you'd expect without being monotonous or predictable: quite a nice feature.

Years Active: '10s

Poking fun at their home city's low crime rate, Oxford, England math rockers This Town Needs Guns named their band on a whim in 2004. Based around guitarist/vocalist Stuart Smith and lead guitarist Tim Collis, the rhythm section rotated several times over the next several years, resulting in a band anchored by bassist Dan Adams and drummer Chris Collis by the time they recorded their 2008 debut, Animals. Jamie Cooper took over on bass soon after, and in 2011, frontman Stuart Smith announced he would...
