TERMINAL A: Pacific Water and Power: CD

If you live in southern California and haven’t seen these guys yet, you’re missing out. Terminal A is a two-piece synth band specializing in avant-garde music. Until recently, the only recorded track from them was “Satellite,” which is on here. So it’s great to hear more music. My favorite track is “Queen Mab”; the vocals are the most pissed-off-sounding of all the songs. There’s also a great guitar solo on the track. Most of the guitars are very minimal and static-y sounding, so it’s nice to hear them take a risk. Fans of bands like Fad Gadget and The Screamers will love these guys.
