It's been three years since we last heard from Terry Malts, who have been retooling for Lost at the Party, their latest release on Slumberland. No, the band hasn't taken a left turn into the world of trap music, but they have moved toward a cleaner, less lo-fi sound by enlisting Monte Vallier (Soft Moon, Weekend, etc.) and recording at his home base in San Francisco. Many of the same influences shine through on the new LP, including the Joy Division / Buzzcocks-kissed track "Used to Be," which utilizes a pair of chords in repetition while the melody is controlled by vocals in the verse. Check out the new track and the also-recent "Seen Everything" below, and order yours via Slumberland ahead of the October 14 release.
