album of the day : Terry Malts 'Killing Time'. San Francisco’s Terry Malts emerged from the indefinite hiatus of literate Smiths acolytes Magic Bullets as a drunken experiment. After years of over-thinking things, they have traded in their clean, jangly guitars for a scuzzy buzzsaw sound recalling The Ramones and Psychocandy era Jesus & Mary Chain. Terry Malts use a time honoured pop formula, but rarely has a new band crammed such sheer excitement and joy into a mere 34 minute listening experience. Each of the songs scrape in at just over 2 minutes long, but they capture a wonderful youthful exuberance, and each euphoric blast is like a high BPM caffeine kick that never outstays it’s welcome.

Album · 2012 · 14 Songs. Terry Malts on Audiotree Live. I'm Neurotic - Single. Nobody Realizes This Is Nowhere.

Based on the opening seconds of almost every song on Killing Time, it would be safe to assume that Terry Malts are a hardcore-leaning punk band. Nauseous" is a battering ram in the middle of the album that opens with a set of fuzzed-out power chords and crashing percussion. The guitar solo aims for the rafters while kinetic energy builds for the song's full three minutes. But despite their belligerence, Terry Malts never scream. Actually, throughout the record, frontman Phil Benson's voice rarely shifts out of "croon. The vocals make sense considering all three.

like they mean it, man. They even prove they can dial down the tempo without losing any power; "No Big Deal" ends the album on a slow feedbacky grind that adds a nice bit of melancholy to the anger and frustration of the proceeding songs. Corey Cunningham's sometimes bleeding, sometimes detached vocals are perfectly matched to his ragged guitar playing and the rhythm section's pounding but light backing

Killing Time takes the familiar trends found in present lo-fi acts and adds a dose of melodic pop, sending listeners into an high energy spiral of attitude and urgency. The fuzzy aesthetic we’ve come to expect from similar noise-making counterparts is there, but Killing Time brandishes an entertaining personality that breathes fresh life into a tried and true trend. Killing Time is presented hastily, with a majority of the tracks spanning no more than three minutes before catapulting listeners into the next unruly burst of guitar and drums. The band’s self-described label of chainsaw pop is entirely befitting on this debut, full of raucous tracks edged in serious bite. Killing Time is a full throttle ride from start to finish, and we’ve been invited along on what sounds like a promising journey. Essential Tracks: Not A Christian and Nauseous.

San Francisco’s Terry Malts follow-up their ace 2012 debut Killing Time with the brilliant new album "Nobody Realizes This Is Nowhere. Recorded by the band and mixed by long-time associate Monte Vallier (Weekend, Wax Idols, Soft Moon), this is a punchy record packed with buzzsaw guitars and surprisingly catchy melodies. Pop and punk in equal measures, but not pop-punk

The 14 songs clock in at only 34 minutes, so Killing Time never overstays its welcome, giving you that caffeine-type pick-me-up so few indie pop albums offer these days. 70. It's a pretty timeless approach that could have ended up sounding tired and played out, but the group's enthusiasm and Cunningham's ability to craft sticky melodies make it sound oven fresh.
