TERRY: I’m Terry: LP

What are Terry? Are they the only (or one of the only) truly masterful poetic/politic bands of the late ’10s? Are they minimal psychedelic realists? Are they exemplars of insular post-punk logic? Are they the most visceral by being the most composed? I know I’m grateful for the yearly gift of a new Terry album, and the feeling of hearing a band that is engaged with the political/social/cultural moment and who are also musically subtle and layered and inviting. They’re so many things at once and also solely themselves, unassuming and visionary craftspeople talking about the surveillance state and traffic and the prison system (among other things), making you dance, bringing light and air into the room. –Matt Werts (Upset The Rhythm, upsettherhythm.co.uk)
