Terry Malts - Let You In
"Let You In" is taken from Terry Malts’ new Insides EP, out September 23 via Slumberland.
At my old job, I used to have to read press releases, which is fun in a nausea-inducing way. However, the press release accompanying this release is a gem, so I am going to reprint it here in support.
Since 2010, and over two albums and a slew of singles and tapes, Terry Malts have been exploring the murky area where hope meets disgust, an area populated with anger, hatred, exhaustion, delusion, seclusion, consumption, life, death, breathing, eating, and a host of other conflicting and confusing ideas. Their records to date have been a refreshing blast of catchy punk, pop-influenced but also chaotic, noisy, [and] shredding. Imagine Bubba from Void sitting in with the Descendents and you’re part of the way there. Fall 2013’s “Nobody Realizes This Is Nowhere” was their most concise release yet - a concentrated blast of melodic bile that cast a long look at life and didn’t always like what it saw.
Now Terry Malts are releasing their first new material in almost a year. The “Insides EP” might be their most “pop” record yet, but don’t let that make you believe that they’ve given up on the blazing, verge-of-feedback guitars or pummeling rhythms. “Let You In” is classic power-pop revved up and played LOUD - a pogo party in under two minutes.
Terry Malts are playing the Brick and Mortar Music Hall on August 27, with Girl Tears.
