Spreading the 'Video Love' |

"Terroreyes is an experimental video platform for documenting things that we like - getting in the faces of people that we like, having our microphones blown out by people that we like, hearing stories from people that we like, etc. All we want to do is show you things you may never otherwise see UP CLOSE. Inspire you in whatever way possible to do something - anything, whatever it is you love."

Terroreyes.Tv was launched a little while ago and already they have collected an amazing bunch of videos. Take this filming of Zach Hill (whose new album Face Tat comes out Oct. 19th on Sargent House): twelve solid minutes of Hill going to town (awesome town) on those drums! Not to mention they have video performances of local bands Sea of Bees, Pregnant, and Ellie Fortune and far out folks like Deerhoof, Dirty Projectors, and Wavves.

From what I've been able to watch thus far (and trust me, I've only made a dent in their catalogue), Terroreyes is living up to their mission. I've been introduced to music and bands I've never heard of before, and watched extremely special videos of acts I already know and love.

Think La Blogotheque but in English, and in Sacramento.

WAVVES Live @Sol Collective 8.30.10 from TERROREYES.TV on Vimeo.

Recently, Terroreyes has branched out of the internet world and started to put on shows. Monday, for example, they co-presented Wavves, Ganglians, G. Green and Produce Produce with free form community r
adio station KDVS at the Sol Collective arts center. Judging by the footage above, the show was packed with excited fans.

Not only that, but T.E. is releasing their first 7'': Tera Melos' "Frozen Zoo" remixes from their full length album Patagonian Rats (Sargent House).

Only 500 pressings available and for only $7.50 it comes with a digital download code, and, according to T.E., a smile.

Go take a little time and check out this website/label?/collector of video rarities out. Chances are you'll be introduced to something new and different that hopefully inspires you to do and see the things you love.

I'll be sure to keep you all apprised of future Terroreyes events!
