Birmingham, Alabama’s Terry Ohms is back with a new album almost a year to the date after his wonderfully eclectic 2019 release, Terryfirma. 2020 brings us Terry’s latest and most cohesive work yet, Cold Cold Shoulder. If you’re unfamiliar with this artist, who flies just under the radar of whoever or whatever algorithm it is that makes an artist widely known these days, know that you never know what your gonna get from album to album or song to song with Terry Ohms. Though, at the same time, he’s not “all over the place”, either. There runs a thread of familiar originality throughout his catalogue that somehow ties it all together as a sonically consistent and insistent omnibus that stretches back twenty years. So far.

With Cold Cold Shoulder, Terry gives us eight stretched out, guitar-dominated tracks, with a running time of 42 minutes. Led by Mr. Ohms shape shifting vocals, the songs get pushed around by soulful and sizzling guitar that is at once tight and loose. There are keyboards from Pluto, and bass lines hung over drum grooves that may cause rug burn. A Corvette-station wagon of sounds smoothly swing and berate on Cold Cold Shoulder. As for the songs, Ohms offers a variety of occupants that inhabit the same spirited borough. A neighborhood where fast talk and tight-two-wheel turns fall in sync with Jam On Revenge blasting out of the boombox on Lou Reed’s porch in Alabama.

Cold Cold Shoulder is Terry Ohms’ eighth release. Terry Ohms is the alter ego of Wes McDonald, who was the singer/guitarists for Vulture Whale and The Ohms, and is currently the drummer for dream-psych-rock outfit, People Years. With the second full length album in as many years, McDonald looks to be plowing full steam ahead with this Terry Ohms guy. He’s been making records under one moniker or another since the year 2000. With a history of giving musical norms and predictable progressions the ole’ cold cold shoulder, he still manages to deliver a damn good song time and again. McDonald has a sharp tongue and a keen and playful musical sensibility that informs his music with power and personality. And as Terry Ohms, who is stretched out, settled in and here to stay for awhile, Cold Cold Shoulder, more than any of his previous records, satisfies and strikes as singular and meant to be.

McDonald engineered, produced and played all the instruments on Cold Cold Shoulder at Terry’s House in Birmingham, AL. He also designed all the artwork and made all the sandwiches.

CLARIFICATION concerning the impending confusion of “What Do You Mean What Do I Mean”, the song, and What Do You Mean What Do I Mean?, the album, and what it all means. (Yes, this is part of the bio.) :

In 2011 Terry Ohms released the album, What Do You Mean, What Do I Mean? on Skybucket Records. It was regarded as the greatest album title of all time by several people on Terry’s softball team and Nelson Wells of Team Clermont. Bumper stickers were made. Aside from the poorly marketed and low selling bumper sticker, until now WDYMWDIM was an album title only. There was NO song titled “What Do You Mean, What Do I Mean?” on the album, What Do You Mean, What Do I Mean? BUT, there IS a song titled “What Do You Mean, What Do I Mean?” on the new Terry Ohms album, Cold Cold Shoulder. No one knows what it all means but that’s the way it is.
