Terry Ohms is the alter ego of Birmingham, Alabama native Wes McDonald – or maybe it’s the other way around. After spending time in their individual musical worlds and influences, it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish where one ends and the other begins, or where the rhythmic reach of one extends and the melodic ambitions of the other continues. But this wasn’t always the case. If you go back 20 years or so, there was only McDonald and an instinctual need to create music and to share it with those within earshot. And to see these sounds released, McDonald moved from Birmingham to Athens, Georgia in the late ‘90s to begin a 6 year residency which would start the gears that would eventually put him on a collision course with Terry Ohms.

Recorded in his basement, McDonald played all the instruments on Terryfirma, created all the artwork and handled the visual duties for the accompanying videos. Terryfirma was the result of time spent in a creative bubble, with all his attention focused on getting the sounds just right. Where the earlier Ohms records were self-contained side projects, deviations from his work with Vulture Whale, this record (and/ to a degree, “A Lot More Than Enough”) is the product of thoughtful details and a need to stretch beyond the comforts of his previous releases.

The garage-y sway and vocal twang of Vulture Whale is still present, but there is also more of an experimental groove to the 9 tracks which comprise the record, as well as an appreciation for classic rock. You can hear the echoes of artists such as The Rolling Stones and Gram Parsons seeping into these tracks – but opening track, “Mind Blow,” evokes the bluster of Hüsker Dü and reckless abandon of The Replacements. Other tracks like the danceable “Bring All to Front” and “We Love You” share space with the lounge guitar vibrations of “Those Eyes,” building a wide-ranging selection of liquid melodies and subtle electronic flourishes. “Peaks and Valleys” explores a fuzzed-up landscape of crunchy rhythms while “Opportunity” brings to mind shuddering synth-pop of the ‘80s.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
