Tera Melos are a band that like to get weird and technical, but never to the point of say, writing a half hour song that pays no attention to verses, choruses, melody, or really anything resembling what most people call a “song.” But that’s just what Tera Melos guitarist Nick Reinhart did on his new collaboration with Ricardo Lagomasino, who drums for Lithuania and DRGN KING. The duo is releasing a cassette called Test Meat on Seagreen Records (pre-order), and we’re premiering the 27-minute and 9-second first half. Listen below. That’s the cover art above, designed by Ricardo’s Lithuania bandmate Eric Slick (also of Dr. Dog).
If you like what you hear, or if you like other Seagreen releases like R. Stevie Moore, Thin Lips, Japanese Breakfast or Battle Ave, you can help the label out by picking up one of their fundraiser tee-shirts to raise money for future releases.
