New Myths is the fifth full-length by The Mercury Program. It includes six songs and willl be released on LP and digital download on May 20th
It was written and recorded during five distraction-free days spent in Northwest Vermont with the band’s friend and touring sound engineer, Peter Bartsocas. Sketches from previous sessions were further refined and new songs quickly took form. The band emerged from the trip with a nearly complete set of songs, with only “Constant Static” realized later, as drummer Dave LeBleu wove together and expanded on snippets of unfinished material.
The record is the product of a week’s worth of studio time, but many years worth of thought and planning. It reflects The Mercury Program’s current state of operation – keeping a slow pace, but always moving forward.
The full-length debut by Washington, D.C. trio, Puff Pieces is out now! The first 500 copies of the LP were pressed on translucent yellow vinyl.
Bland In D.C., the debut record by Puff Pieces will be out this Spring. The album includes 11 songs recorded by the group and by Devin Ocampo in Washington, D.C.
You can listen to the song "Women and Men w/ Guns" on Soundcloud.
Originally released in 2001, And We Washed Our Weapons in the Sea was the final release by Northern Virginia-based trio, Frodus.
Recorded in the summer of 1999 with Brian McTernan at Salad Days Studios, Weapons is a depiction of life in the late 20th century at the cusp of a major technological and lifestyle transition. It’s an album that documents the times, displaying within the music the undying human element that remains glowing amongst the constant hum of the world.
Since the initial release, the album has continued to build a die-hard fan base, despite the group’s inactivity. Countless bands have named Frodus as influencers to their sound and the landscape of experimental hardcore music.
