I'm disappointed in Tera Melos. A person spends a good bit of their new video for "So Occult/Kelly", a song from their latest LP Patagonian Rats, smashing (perfectly good) beers with a baseball bat. At least they do so while wearing a Freddy Krueger-like creepy old man mask. Check out said carnage below.
The math-y band, who recently swooped in for a Daytrotter session, have a gang of tour dates in North America in October. Look for the Sac-town crew to appear on shows with Boris, Melt Banana, Master Musicians of Bukkake, and Coliseum No NYC date so far, but we'll be on the look out.
And for the curious, you read right. Melt Banana will head out on a US tour this fall. No NYC date thus far, but the rest of their US schedule is available below.
Master Musicians of Bukkake are featured on the latest Important Records compilation which collects rare tracks in celebration of the label's 10th anniversary (!). Congrats to Important Records. Pick up said comp, which features appearances from Grails, Cave, Chord, Bardo Pond, and others.
