They may hail from California, but buzz-saw-pop trio Terry Malts manage the neat trick of sounding like a UK act steeped in Americana. It’s not that bass player and vocalist Phil Benson sings with a British accent, but rather that he brings a touch of post-punk cool to the proceedings (his vocals recall House of Love’s Guy Chadwick, circa their 1988 hit “Christine”). Terry Malts are like the Buzzcocks filtered through Hüsker Dü, as guitarist and sometime-vocalist Corey Cunningham generates the buzz and chime, while drummer Nathan Sweatt delivers the power and speed (Cunningham’s lilting “It’s Not Me” proves he should sing more). After two self-produced efforts, Terry Malts hired Soft Moon producer Monte Vallier to bring the group’s strengths into sharper focus for this year’s Lost at the Party without dulling their distinctive personality.
