Quiet Geist CD
This is the debut full length by Boston, MA's Herra Terra! With 10 songs clocking in at just under 39 minutes, the band brings to mind great electronic rock bands like Depeche Mode, Head Automatica, Le Tigre, and Duran Duran while copping a modern twist of atmosphere and ambiance that allows them to fit right in on the Mylene Sheath roster, while creating their own very unique voice among the bands. This is the CD version of the album and comes in 5" full color gatefold jackets printed on the reverse board - giving it a tough, grainy feel - with black inner flood throughout. So where the vinyl jackets for this release are printed with a UV gloss covering the jackets, this is pretty much the exact opposite. The left panel of the gatefold holds an 8 page booklet with lyrics and liner notes, while the right side of the jacket houses the CD itself. The artwork design and layout were handled by Junius guitarist Michael Repasch-Nieves for Radar Visual (The Cancer Copnspiracy, Junius, Constants). You need to be bumpin' this, so get to checkin out "Ejection Seats", the first track on the album, HERE! Do yah Boogie thang!!
"HERRA TERRA was conceived by Vocalist, John Paul Tonelli and Guitarist, Gregg Kusumah-Atmadja. The duo released a 3 song EP in 2008 entitled Organs For The Afterlife with help from other Boston based musicians (Bad Rabbits, Irepress) and Sound Engineer, Mike Mo Lapierre (Death Cab for Cutie, Brand New, Dropkick Murphy's). Not being able to find a permanent fixture on drums, the band played as a two piece electronic act in the New England area until 2009. After rigorously searching for a drummer, the band recruited Brad Caetano (Arms & Sleepers, Seneca, AM/PM). Ever since, the group has melded together and enhanced their electronic and live elements. Now adding Adrian Bettencourt Andrade on Bass, HERRA TERRA has finally transitioned into the electro/rock outfit they ve been threatening to become this entire time. The band mixes elements of Depeche Mode, Le Tigre, Head Automatica, and Duran Duran to create an exciting new album that is just as easy to dance to as it to listen to analytically. This is definitely more than just a party, but it IS a party.
HERRA TERRA is heading out on a full US tour this fall in support of the new LP, "Quiet Geist," which is set for release on September 14th, 2010. HERRA TERRA has shared the stage with some outstanding artists such as: Shiny Toy Guns, Piebald, Damone, Freeze Pop, Green Jelly, Appleseed Cast, Hot Rod Circuit, Chk Chk Chk (!!!), Bad Rabbits, Irepress, Semi Precious Weapons and many others. Now the band is ready to get out on the road and bring the dance party to new places who ve yet to witness it. As Emma Goldman once said: "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution." "
