David Terry's love of the pop hook has only gotten stronger with time. Unlike I Sold Gold's huge, blown-out drum sounds and blip-pop synths, Or Give Me Death finds Terry broadening his tonal horizons to encompass mariachi horns, Gershwin-esque strings, looped and layered vocals, and grand piano. Oh and there's also quite a lot more electric guitar.

The Tulsa Trap

Debut full-length release from the master of bedroom pop, crammed full of blown-out drum sounds, blip pop synths, pianos, and a sense of both seriousness and humor that continues to draw comparisons to the Flaming Lips, Frank Black, Grandaddy, and Mates of State.

Who Wanna Rock?

This 5-song CD-EP, Pistols At Dawn, is an excellent introduction to the smart, wry, bedroom pop of David Terry, mad genius behind Aqueduct. These five songs are full of drum machines, pianos, keyboards, and a great sense of humor, not to mention the catchy beats and melodies — it's no wonder Aqueduct has been praised by a number of respected musicians, including the Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, and Death Cab's Ben Gibbard.

"Satirical without being too clever for its own good, catchy without layering on extra cheese, smart-alecky without a sense of arrogance, Aqueduct is a treasure." (Exclaim!)
