'Gloss Drop' continues their minimal approach to songwriting and features guest vocals from the likes of Gary Numan, Matias Aguayo, and Kazu Makino from Blonde Redhead.
"As a band we say we dislike [the term math rock] immensely, but there's really not much you can do about it. But obviously I would prefer if people don't [use it]. I think it's kind of a ridiculous term. Not even to mention that fact that it's an old term that's from the early 90's that his [Ian's] old band helped basically invent." -- John Stainer
