Can ya tell me how life goes on? So coos Terry Six on the latest single by Terry & Louie. For Six — the only member of influential Portland act the Exploding Hearts to survive a van crash in 2003 — it’s a poignant question. As for the answer, it’s self-evident: link up with an old collaborator, early Hearts member King Louie, and return to the classicist power-pop of the Hearts’ sole album Guitar Romantic, which remains a touchstone for new bands mining the Seventies intersections of glitter and punk. Last year’s Terry & Louie stand-out was “She Loves Him,” a sauntering ballad with glistening guitar leads that spill into a buoyant bridge while Six professes his love in spite of being an avowed loser. On “Can Ya Tell Me,” Six pleads again with a fleeing lover — boys’ noise. On Thursday, the local Exploding Hearts fans in Dancer and Talkies support Terry & Louie at The Night Light (311 Broadway, Oakland).
