Sacramento-based Tera Melos came a long way since its start in 2004. According to Alternative Press magazine, its debut, Complex Full of Phantoms, released by Los Angeles label Sargent House in 2005, was one of the year’s most overlooked albums. With Patagonian Rats released in 2010 and a U.S. tour alongside New York-based singer and guitarist Marnie Stern, the band will be bringing its atypical, complex guitar melodies and electronic-pop sound to the TownHouse on Saturday. Elements of rock and electronic beats with jazzy undertones create an intense, dreamlike atmosphere for the audience to bathe in. 1517 21st Street, www.teramelosmusic.com.
