Decoy Music Reviews - Tera Melos "Patagonian Rats"
Tera Melos has become infected with a strain of pop. The Sacramento trio are slurring melodies and scurrying rhythms on their new full length album, Patagonian Rats. We find our clever friends delving deeper into intricate and more complex song structures. While traditionally Tera Melos is covered with a dense sound, on this album there are melodic hooks that almost seem to defy the...

Tera Melos 3+1 = 4 Piece for Tour (VIDEO)
A Message from Tera Melos: “now that you’ve listened to patagonian rats a hundred times, you may have noticed that it’s densely layered with goodie bits. there’s lots of skronky blip sounds, electro snare rolls and melodies hidden all over the place. we thought it’d be fun to recreate as much of the record as we could live. so our friend evan will be touring with us, helping to provide...
Lisa Papineau A Glassroom Session "Sorry I Cannot...
Lisa Papineau ‘s voice is otherworldly, and is one of my absolute favorite sounds on this planet. This is her performing her song Sorry I Cannot English from the album Red Trees, live from the Glassroom at Sargent House. This was kind of an accidental session as we had set up to have her play with two drummers and perform what would be a raucous rock song. But our grouchy ass neighbors...

Tera Melos Interview with I Heart Noise
Interview by I Heart Noise 1. What’s in a name? Why Tera Melos? i remember coming up with the name and really liking that visually and audibly the words didn’t really conjure up specific images. it was up to the viewer/listener to decide what it could possibly mean, and from there what the music could possibly sound like. it starts one’s musical relationship with us on a completely clean...

RED SPAROWES INTERVIEW: With Best New Bands
On The Road With Red Sparowes Written by Lauren Novik The severely ambient music of Red Sparowes is absolutely worth experiencing. The songs peppered with somber notes and self-reflective starkness are unavoidably hypnotic- and if I’m this entranced via auditory tools, I can’t wait to see what their live performance at the El Rey Theatre next week will bring! Their new CD The Fear Is...

Maps & Atlases Review in Huffington Post
Maps & Atlases - NYC By: Kim Gittleson I have a confession to make. Last night, the first time in a long time—perhaps for the first time ever—I saw a band without having heard any of their songs. I read no blog posts, visited no MySpace pages, read no tweets. I even had to repeatedly squint at the sign behind the bar (hey, I forgot my glasses) to remember the name of the...
NATIVE: Short And Sweet NYC Album Review
By: John J Frusciante Native - Wrestling Moves (Sargent House) Formed in Indiana in 2007, Native plays gritty, churning post-hardcore that bursts forward on throbbing rhythms and aggressive guitar lines and sounds like 13 Songs-era Fugazi mixed with Cobra Kai. This full-length debut follows their well-received EP We Delete; Erase and lives up to the band’s hype, buzzing with jolts of electric...

RCRD LBL Feature Zach Hill Free Download
Drummer solo albums are rarely good–this much Ringo taught us. But when the drummer in question plays like virtually no one else alive (our only reference point being Keith Moon, if he’d been into prog) and is known as a consummate collaborator (see: Hella, Marnie Stern, Boredoms, Wavves, etc.), those reservations can be comfortably cast aside. Such is the case with Zach...
RUSSIAN CIRCLES ACCIDENT : SUCKS
Nothing like buying a new van and having it destroyed 4 days later along with the trailer that was rented and a ton of gear. Vintage Gretsch drum kit DESTROYED - tears for that. Russian Circles have been stranded in Baton Rouge since Friday and are so sad to have had to miss playing the Baton Rouge, Atlanta and Carborro shows. But they are on the way to buy their second van in a week and will...
