OHMYYES!

TERA MELOS - THE FLEECE

Discovered these on Tuesday, listened to around 1 minute of them and decided to go and see them! The plan was to go to Cardiff but it clashed with another gig so off to Bristol it was!
What caught my ear was that there was something in their sound that alluded to Stump a band I very love, that sold it for me. 
Overall their sound is what you’d achieve if you placed !!!, Stump, a small toddler with scientific curiosity (and powetools) into a blender and then somehow poured the blended result down a cable into Satan’s pedalboard (Satan has been listening to stoner rock & Parquet Courts and that’s what his kit is set to) the signal chain includes a JamMan, then it all feeds out the other end and the sound of Tera Melos is what comes out the other side.

Throw in the thoughts you have when your mind is racing at 1am and you’re trying to sleep and you’re there.

I mean all of the above as an immense musical compliment because I fucking loved it, all the unpredictable sounds, the clicking, crashing, which-way-is-it-going-to-go-mania of it all… sublime. Tempted to go see them again tonight, as you all should.
