• Tera Melos release new album

    The more Tera Melos’ career progresses, the harder it is to classify them. Trash Generator, the followup to 2013’s X’ed Out, could be their most versatile album yet. The start-stop rhythms and off-kilter timing are as complex as the most niche math rock bands, there’s enough weight to rival metal bands and there’s an authentic punk spirit. It’s a mix of sounds that can sound ridiculous on paper but is such a thrill to listen to. This album basically jumps in with the weirdness and the momentum both at a high, and it stays like that through to the final track, only rarely slowing or quieting down. The album’s lead single, “Don’t Say I Know,” was really the perfect song to preface Trash Generator. All of the band’s sides are represented in one way or another on that song, and if hearing it got you excited, you’re gonna really dig the rest of this LP.

    Trash Generator is now available everywhere on LP, CD and download!

  • Tera Melos premiere new song from forthcoming album Trash Generator

    Tera Melos premiere a new track from their forthcoming third album, Trash Generator, today via Brooklyn Vegan.

    Trash Generator, the trio’s third full length, is an astonishing blast of confidence and rejuvenation. It sounds as if the 4-year downtime since their last album has recharged the band with an entirely new sense of purpose. Their dalliances with mellower psychedelic phrases on their previous two albums, X’ed Out (2013) and Patagonian Rats (2010) are significantly trimmed and utilised. As such, it sounds like Tera Melos has fully metabolised their pop tendencies and found a way they can coexist with the band’s iconoclast origins. Tera Melos — guitarist/vocalist Nick Reinhart, bassist Nathan Latona and drummer John Clardy — have learned to stop worrying and just be Tera Melos.
