Tera Melos

When: Sat., Sept. 25, 9 p.m. 2010

It's impossible to divorce Sacramento trio Tera Melos from their math/ post-rock roots. Following a path blazed by forebears such as Don Caballero and Polvo, they forge a volatile, disjunct sound with a herky-jerky pulse potholed by arpeggiated bursts and stabs of guitar. Their approach is artier, and they focus as much on the swells of melody as the spasmodic intervals. The vocals reinforce that approach with an intermittent, swooning, reverbed tenor croon worthy of a baroque rock act but consigned to a corner toward the back of the mix.—Chris Parker
