Tera Melos drop remix of "Snake Lake" ft. Busdriver & Milo

Sacramento prog-rock outfit Tera Melos dropped an interesting track last week, a remix of their song "Snake Lake" featuring Hellfyre Club lyricists, the avantcore Busdriver and Milo. The genre-flexing remix will be on Tera Melos’ upcoming X’ed Out Remixes EP, out today via Sargent House. The sequel to "Snake Lake", off May’s X’ed Out, the remix is both sweet and dizzying, and foreshadows even more experimental cuts from the trio.

Live This Month: May 2013 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #305)

Live This Month: May 2013 — an audio guide through SF concerts this month (Podcast #305) In Live This Month, we sample some of the great local and out-of-town bands performing in the coming month in the San Francisco Bay Area.

A sense of space also guides Clinic's psych-pop offering Free Reign; in fact, the group just released an alternate collection, [...]

Wednesday: Tera Melos, Adebisi Shank and Le Butcherettes @ Great American

As if we hadn't recommended enough shows to our readers this week. Here's yet another fantastic show presented by Sargent House that we just couldn't keep quiet about: Tera Melos plays the Great American this Wednesday with Adebisi Shank and Le Butcherettes (8pm, $14). The video above was directed in part by the band's own Nick Reinhart along with former Northern Californian and one-man production house, videographer Sean Stout (aka Terroreyez.tv). Playing to the strengths of the song, the creative direction precariously wanders, and has some tasty comp work (yes, I believe that is spaghetti comped in for the skateboarder [...]

Marnie Stern & Tera Melos announce dates, tour ends in SF

There are very few bands that are tastefully preserving post-rock's mathy guitar parts, abrupt time signature changes and bright melodies, so cleanly executed in the late 1990s-early 2000s by bands like Hella, Don Caballero and Owls. Sacramento's Tera Melos are among said preservationists. Their 2010 release Patagonian Rats (Sargent House) is streaming below, with the rest of their discography available to stream on their Bandcamp site (boy, do we ever appreciate Bandcamp). Tour dates for Tera Melos and Marnie Stern (who was recently profiled in the New Yorker) are posted after the jump. The joint venture ends here with a [...]
