Tera Melos – New Chlorine

A band that could only come out of California, Tera Melos seems to enjoy confusing the crap out of their listeners. Jazz-based math rock with elements of electronic and house music thrown in, they’re actually considered to be innovators of the math rock scene. The rhythmic structure of each song can only be characterized as “chaotic.” Guitar-tapping, start-and-stop dynamics, and the extreme use of guitar pedals and effects make Tera Melos one of the most interesting bands to watch live. You can actually catch them this weekend when they open for TTNG at The Magic Stick. Check out the track “New Chlorine” off their tamest album to date: 2013′s X’ed Out below. Read More…

The Dear Hunter – Whisper

Providence, Rhode Island’s The Dear Hunter have been making a theatrical version of ambient hard rock since 2005. Musical mastermind Casey Crescenzo, along with his brother Nick, create a full, powerful sound spanning the spectrum of emotion. With a versatile arsenal of -driven storylines, each album has been a heroic tale of love and loss. The new album Migrant is their first concept-free album. Claiming to be the most honest album yet, it’s clearly pure experimentation at its best. Check out the music video for the new track “Whisper” off their 2013 album Migrant below. Read More…

Look Mexico – Not On My Watch

Florida’s Look Mexico are the best band you’ve never heard of. After a series of lineup changes, they began putting out music in 2006. With elements of math rock, post rock, and alternative, Look Mexico provide a new and refreshing take on music with each song. Chaotic yet controlled drums carry the song through sporadic, off-kilter guitar lines and bright, crisp vocals. Though their style has changed over the years, each album and EP they put out offers something new. Plus, all their song titles are Vin Diesel quotes, so there’s that. Check out the track “Not On My Watch” off their 2006 release This Is Animal Music below. Read More…

Rare Monk – Death By Proxy

Rare Monk are a melting pot of indie rock. Combining all different types of rock including, but not limited to soul, garage, indie, folk, and electronic. Like a broken down, raw version of Atlas Genius, the Portland-based five-piece have only been in the scene for a couple years. Often getting into fits of experimental, psychedelic rage, Rare Monk could be described as a mix between Surfer Blood and The Killers. Check out the song “Death By Proxy” off their 2013 album Sleep/Attack below. Read More…

Ramona Falls – The Space Between Lightning and Thunder

Formerly a side project of Menomena co-creator Brent Knopf, Ramona Falls has become the indie stylist’s current mainstay. Named after a waterfall near Mt. Hood, Ramona Falls creates the same stir of emotion Menomena does, but with a deeper, fuller sound. It sounds like Brent Knopf took his Menomena sound and met up with some of the guys from As Tall As Lions. As ambient, moody, and quirky as ever, Ramona Falls swells and swirls evoking a sense of serenity akin to that of the ocean. Check out the track “The Space Between Lightning and Thunder” off their 2012 album Prophet below. Read More…

Infantree – Original Sin

The third and newest album Hero’s Dose from the San Fernando Valley indie rock band Infantree have been climbing the ranks of the music scene for the last five years. Combining elements of rock, indie rock, and folk, Infantree provide relaxed, yet upbeat sounds to brighten your day. Simple, yet creative beats carry the album while floating guitar lines connect the dots between Fleet Foxes-esque vocal harmonies. Check out the song “Original Sin” off their 2012 album Hero’s Dose below. Read More…
