Seems that iTunes's Listeners Also Bought algorithm actually works. An accidental find on Blip.fm, Giraffes? Giraffes!, sent me to the iTunes Store to buy the full album. While there, it was recommended that I check out a band named Tera Melos - which I did.
A couple quick listens and I was sold. Off-kilter, oddly-timed, guitar-driven, noise-ish stuff, Tera Melos plays a messy brand of precision post-rock that'll either annoy the hell out of you or offer a compelling, enjoyable musical challenge. They'll be at Bottom of The Hill in San Francisco on March 11
Check out this batch of covers - Idioms, vol I. My new favorite longboarding music.
I interviewed San Francisco filmmaker Jon Bowden last week for my Examiner.com column. He came down to the SFSDF studios and we chatted about his film, the San Francisco film community and a couple other things.
SFSDF alum Guillermo Tunon and current SFSDF student Khen Shomron did a fantastic job on lighting and sound and Guillermo's editing skillz (yes, with a "z", dammit) made the interview smooth and look super-slick.
