It's Mark writing. I just flew back in from the USA - and boy are my arms (and everything else) tired! Jet-lag aside, there's lots to catch up on, not the least of which is that TERMS "All Becomes Indistinct" is out now! You can pick it up at discriminating record stores everywhere or visit our bandcamp page and snag your copy HERE.
I shared bits and pieces of the trip on the SKiN GRAFT Facebook page - so feel free to go there to see pics from SKiN GRAFT's April First Fest in Cheer-Accident's Basement and my visit to Smashed Plastic Record Pressing with Tijuana Hercules' John Forbes. Speaking of Smashed Plastic, they are currently hard at work on an as yet unannounced long player that is due to arrive later this year. Stay tuned!
Early notices of the TERMS album have started coming in. Here's what people are saying...
"No, you’re not having a stroke. It’s Terms and this is “All Becomes Indistinct” and I think it’s utterly brilliant. A 'WTF' out of 10. (10/10)”
- Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life (Article / Track Premiere)
“Terms make hard-boiled, beautifully difficult, powerfully complex instrumental pop music, the kind of music that never is difficult to listen to, to go with, to flow with, they may be clever, they may be far more complex as musicians than most are, they may be very, very challenging - but this is so easy to go with - to listen to - to just simply enjoy…”
- The Organ (Article / Track Premiere)
“Terms Share their Creative Process “The song doesn't write itself. But it does sometimes express a preference!“”
- Fifteen Questions (Feature Interview)
“TERMS have dropped their final single “Sleep Until It’s Colder,” the track arrives ahead of the noise rock duo’s album All Becomes Indistinct, which arrives on April 21st via SKiN GRAFT Records. The track will definitely assuage the tastes of Big Black, Don Caballero, Battles and more. Guitarist Chris Trull is an alumnus of the prestigious acts Yowie and Grand Ulena, while drummer Danny Piechocki moonlights in the band Ahleuchatistas alongside Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk)”
- Northern Transmissions (Track Premiere)
"If you are a bit of a weirdo like me, and into everything the amazing drummer Zach Hill does, or Don Caballero, or early Daughters for the heavier parts, you are going to a be grinning broadly al lot throughout this album. There are just so many quirks and original angles throughout the songs, that each time your brain thinks it has the music all figured out, the band winks at you, and leads you through yet another mind bend.”
- Weirdo Shrine (Interview / Album Review)
On Terms - "First Existential" – “The trio surge from one idea to the next, remaining forever brilliantly off balance but entirely in sync. It’s a mind meld that is as delightful as it is mangled, the end result sounding something like an instrumental Primus played at double speed or Don Cab rattled and disassembled. Strings screech amid layers of sonic mayhem while the drums (holy hell, these drums) keep the song in a constant state of change, seamlessly moving in all directions at once.”
- Post-Trash (Article / Track Premiere)
“Progzilla has exclusive access to the single “Blusterguts!” prior to the album’s release. Nice guys, these Terms!”
- Progzilla (Song Premiere)
“Hyphenated genre labels never hit the nail on the head, but TERMS play tight, experimental, guitar-driven rock that keeps you on your toes...”
- Scene Point Blank (Song Premiere / Interview)
“Marina Organ presents an hour of music that uses unconventional structures and 'other' time signatures – gathered from the worldwide undergrounds of math rock, avant prog, weird electronica and strange pop. This week's show features new music from TERMS!”
- The Other Rock Show (Track Premiere)
“Math Rock Dignitary Chris Trull Talks About His New Band Terms, Their Upcoming Album “All Becomes Indistinct,” His First Duo, How Working Remotely Has Affected Their Sound, and Working with SKiN GRAFT”
- Post-Burnout (Interview)
TERMS fire off a deafening warning shot with latest single and new album announcement: “Terms‘ first single from their upcoming album All Becomes Indistinct (out April 21st) has us tingling with feverish anticipation. But there’s more here than we anticipated, and we anticipated a lot…”
- Fecking Bahamas (Feature Article / Song Premiere)
“Progressive, experimental, avant-garde, call it what you will, Terms provide a musical kaliedoscope that draws from many influences…”
- At The Barrier (New Album News)
“Terms, arriving by way of Tampa Bay, Florida and St. Louis, Missouri surfaced during the pandemic as a socially distanced band – dealing in dissonance, atonality and the unknown.”
- Thoughts Words Action (Album Announcement)
“In the words of guitarist Christopher Trull, on “All Becomes Indistinct” Terms managed to: “…bridge the thousand mile distance between us to create an ongoing musical collaboration we are extremely proud of; and we believe our new album expands and refines our musical concepts”.
- RocknLoad Magazine (Album Announcement)
“Terms have announced their new album “All Becomes Indistinct”… Guitarist Chris Trull is an alumnus of the prestigious acts YOWIE and Grand Ulena, while drummer Danny Piechocki moonlights in the band Ahleuchatistas alongside Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk).”
