Last year, Tera Melos singer/guitarist Nick Reinhart launched his new project Disheveled Cuss with the single “Wanna Be My Friend” and said he planned to release its debut album on Sargent House in 2020. Now, that album is announced. It’s self-titled and comes out May 8 via Sargent House, and it features “Wanna Be My Friend” as well as the just-released “Nu Complication.” Compared to Tera Melos’ chaotic math rock, Disheveled Cuss is much more in the breezier ’90s indie rock realm, and this new one is crunchy power pop that’ll probably appeal to fans of Teenage Fanclub and Nada Surf, but it’s still got that Nick Reinhart touch, especially on the kinda-creepy refrain.
