.:Band of the Day:.

- Tera Melos -

Sad to have discovered them only recently, but nonetheless happy I did so..
This brilliant band hails from Sacramento, California and makes music that
blends elements of rock, jazz and ambient electronics with a characteristic unconventional
song structure that incorporates features such as alternating rhythmic patterns, start-stop dynamics (to mention a few)..these guys are basically genreless!
The 3-piece band has been around since 2005 , and has released 2 LP's.
The first one being self titled, and released during 2005, only to be to be re-issued by
Sargent House in 2008, and 'Patagonian Rats' which was released early in September 2010.
They started off searching for a vocalist, on the way decided to stick to an instrumental approach, and later on decided to embed some vocals, which is apparent on 'Patagonian Rats'.
Personally, I stand on the instrumental era, which to me provides the best example of their work.
Recently, they realeased their 'Zoo Weather' EP, which you can check out here.
At present, they are touring US with Marnie Stern.
Below are embedded videos of their 2 Lp's..Certainly, worth keeping an eye on!
