Com Truise


Seth Haley, a.k.a Com Truise’s excellent Cyanide Sisters EP actually came out last summer, but it’s been reissued by Ghostly International and now features four new songs, including “Innerfacer.” It’s one of those songs that, if listened to while driving, makes you feel like a total badass.

3 Leafs

“Eat The Earth” album stream

Check out San Francisco’s 3 Leaf doing their best nu-age space rock lounge routine. The entirety of this slow-building improv jam can be heard on the band’s Soundcloud. Here’s a mission statement of sorts:

Our music is improvised, though we will occasionally use small compositional cells from which to spring into new places.
Editing is not frowned upon.

Yeah, that’s what The String Cheese Incident said like 15 years ago, man.

Tyler The Creator & Hodgy Beats


Tyler The Creator and Hodgy Beats perform “Sandwitches” on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The song was originally seen on the BLACKENEDWHITE album, released last year under the MellowHype moniker. This version… woah. Shit’s getting nasty.

Tera Melos

“Manar The Magic”

Next Tuesday, Sacramento’s Tera Melos are releasing the Zoo Weather EP, the follow-up to last year’s full-length Patagonian Rats (both released on Sargent House). The six-track EP features three new songs and three remixes, including one by Melt-Banana (!!). The video above is for “Manar The Magic,” the EP’s lead track, and it features the always awesome Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE).

Don’t forget that Tera Melos start their tour with Marnie Stern tomorrow. Check here for the latest and greatest dates. And if you have time to kill, it’s worth checking out this recent Writers On Process interview with Nick from Tera Melos. He talks about poetry, The Simpsons, and writer’s block. My three favorite things!
