INDIE ROCK REVIEWS : Best New Music / Tera Melos
Written by: Bear I wrote this while I was listening to the song over and over again: Tera Melos plays some heavy math beats that I want to kill them for…. or kiss their nerdy faces. This song is addictive in so many ways. For some reason I would like to tell the band that they did an awful job with the song, but that would be a lie….. I love you, I hate you… I lOVE YOU… I HATE YOU….. I think...

Zach Hill Interview with I Heart Noise
Your upcoming album is called “Face Tat” – why was it named that way? the title is loosely based on the idea of individual platforms. how we all find them and use them differently . i think a facial tattoo is a very extreme way to use your own body as a platform. committing to a projection to that degree is something that i find interesting and metaphorical on many levels .
