PREMIERE: Tera Melos - Manar The Magic (feat. Mike Watt)
It's hard to describe Minutemen without sounding trite: groundbreaking, unparalleled, the best of the best. They were punk in its prime and arbiters of the mixed method approach to sound, combining elements of jazz, acid rock and other styles with their hardcore roots and innovative take on song structure. So who better than bassist Mike Watt to cameo on "Manar The Magic," the latest track from fellow Californians Tera Melos, who share this penchant for melding mediums. The electronics, channeling a toddler repeatedly rolling up and down a keyboard, provide a nice groundwork for the band's signature start stop sound, and it's no surprise they'll be heading out on tour this winter with fellow frenetic songstress Marnie Stern. "Manar The Magic" is from the forthcoming EP Zoo Weather, the d-side to last year's Patagonian Rats out Februray 22 on Sargent House.
