Brooklyn Vegan premiere of “Slimed” video

imageimage

Melodic math rockers Tera Melos released their solid X’ed Out album last year via Sargent House, and just gave one of its tracks, “Slimed,” video treatment. The video follows a couple of costumed guys with a shitty acoustic guitar from the shower to the swimming pool, and shows all their antics (including playing with a dolphin fountain) along the way. The video premieres in this post above. Directed by Nick Reinhart from the band.

As briefly mentioned, Tera Melos are also touring with The Dillinger Escape Plan and Vattnet Viskar this year, which is a pretty great triple bill. The tour doesn’t hit NYC, but it will be nearby for shows at Amityville, NY’s Revolution Bar & Music on 5/9 (tickets) and Hartford, CT’s Webster Theater on 5/10 (tickets).

Amoeba Music: Review and Interview with Nick Reinhart and free Tera Melos instore on April 14th in San Francisco

imageimage

image

Sacramento avant-rockers Tera Melos will play Amoeba San Francisco April 14 at 2 p.m. Their latest record, X’ed Out (due April 16 on Sargent House), is a blast of tightly coiled riffs unraveling in all directions while sweet melodies keep the whole thing grounded in the eye of the storm. “Weird Circles” chugs along on math-rock riffery, while “New Chlorine” starts like some demonic cover of “Chopsticks” before unveiling a big, acidic rocker. “Bite” balances nasty, nauseous riffs with big, dreamy choruses, while “Sunburn” is the band’s clearest entry point, with non-stop riffs tapping underneath the band’s bright melodies. They chill out for ballads like “Snake Lake” and “No Phase,” as concerned with heavenly harmony as the guitar trickery beneath the surface, and they ease the tension with the sunshine pop of “Tropic Lame.” It’s been a while since we’ve heard a band as unabashedly guitar-centric as Tera Melos that can also write a decent pop song, recalling their Northern California brethren like Deerhoof and Hella, and while X’ed Out has its share of heady noodling, Tera Melos never sound self-indulgent. It’s a feast for guitar geeks and a reminder that indie rock need not be a laid-back, tepid affair. They make indie-prog that’s as fun to listen to as it is impressive, and that’s no easy feat.

I caught up with the band’s Nick Reinhart as Tera Melos prepared for a tour that begins with their Amoeba performance. They’ll be back in California in May, hitting L.A.’s The Echo May 23 and on May 25th in San Francisco at Bottom of the Hill

SPIN: Tera Melos’ X’ed Out Full Album Stream a week early

imageimage

image

Over three albums and a couple lineup changes, Tera Melos, the Sacramento trio fronted by guitarist/vocalist Nick Reinhert, has made a full shift from the unconventional song structures of ambient-indebted post rock to hyper-technical guitar pop. And while ambling 28-minute songs may be a thing of the past, his band’s new effort shows that they aren’t keen to let up on the chaos. X’ed Out picks up largely where the band’s 2010 LP Patagonian Rats left off, drenching Reinhert’s demure vocals in labyrinthine guitar work. But X’d Out goes even further than its predecessor, keeping the rapid-fire instrumentation but peeling back some of the instrumental layers to put the focus more firmly on the vocals. The buoyant riffing of tracks like “Sunburn” and “Surf Nazis” moves the band into the territory of fellow experimentalists-gone-pop-maximalists Marnie Stern and Maps & Atlases. That’s some good company to keep.

Pre-order X’ed Out on vinyl or cd here.

Circuit Sweet Exclusive: Tera Melos Live Interview & Feature


The enigmatic Sacramento based 3 piece Tera Melos are no strangers to Circuit Sweet.

As previously stated Tera Melos have built up more than a reputation for themselves in the 8 attentive years their name has been known. Nick Reinhart and Nathan Latona found themselves in a tough position following the disbandment of their former outfit- no regard. Needing to continue their music; Tera Melos was formed in 2004 and has since released 1 split, 5 EP’s and 3 albums. Lost an original member, gained a new talent in drummer John Clardy, played copious amounts of live shows and signed to Sargent House. The three aside from touring are currently writing material for their latest album release.

After finally getting the chance to see the legendary band last year during their long overdue UK tour, we then had the pleasure in speaking with guitarist Nick on behalf of the band. This interview proved such a popular feature the amount of views it received crashed the site!- Still one of the most loves article on our site which you can re-visit here.

Since last year’s interview we have kept close with the band and all the Tera Melos updates. We’ve even had Nick join us for our end of year special feature Rad Releases. In February of this year we published the announcement that Tera Melos were returning to the UK. It was announced Tera Melos would be heading overseas in May to headline a massive UK/EU tour after playing some of the April re-union shows with legendary fIREHOSE in the states. Their tour took them to the UK, Ireland, France, Sweden, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Russia, Ukraine and many more places.

Terroreyes TV : Interview with Nick Reinhart



Tera Melos
are an experimental rock band from Sacramento, CA. We sat down for a quick chat with Nick Reinhart to talk about their upcoming record, past and future collaborations and prank phone calls.

Sean: You guys are working on a new record right now? How’s that going?

‪Nick: Good. We’ve done most of all the basic tracking- guitar, drums and bass. Started vocals before fIREHOSE tour. It is looking like we’ll finish everything up after Europe‬.

S: Are you guys taking any different approaches with this record? Anything different that you are excited about?‬

N: Well we initially set out to make a more back to basics, mellow, minimal record. At least that was my idea around this time last year. But that totally did not happen. Haha. The vibe of the record is a little more straightened out than before. Although our idea of straightened out is probably still pretty out there for all intents and purposes. All the new stuff is very exciting, mostly just because it exists in territories that we haven’t really explored.‬

S: In what way? What sort of territories?‬

‪N: I guess I wouldn’t know how to describe it other than knowing that it’s something that we haven’t done musically. It could probably be quantified by the average, casual listener as sounding “less fucked up.”‬

S: “Patagonian Rats” Your last record, I would say was fairly accessible for the average music listener, would you say this record is going to be more poppy?‬

‪N: There are a few choruses that will get stuck in your head, so I guess that makes it more poppy. People that liked our last record will definitely like this one.‬
