Tera Melos are very maximal when it comes to their shreddy, melodically buff art-pop. Their April LP X'ed Out is chock-full of great ideas and impressive executions — an interlocking pile of barbs and briars and jigsaw pieces that all manage to vibrate at just the right frequency. The Sacramento trio's knack for achieving that strange aural harmony carries over to the new video for opening song "Weird Circles." Behn Fannin directs as Nick Reinhart, Nathan Latona, and John Clardy take part in a variety of odd experiments for the camera — things involving bags on heads, batting practice with film villains, various types of sweet foods, acts of public embarrassment, and, in one scene, a narcissistic robot squirrel. Oh, and wait till you see those hot dogs dance.
