The Mercury Program – Chez Viking

The Mercury Program - Chez Viking
The very first post I ever did on the ISO50 blog was of The Mercury Program, just one of those bands that I feel like I can play for anyone and they’ll fall in love with at least one song. I admire that this record stayed on pace with their previous albums, you know lush key work and light on the feet yet a wave of feel good energy popping up now and again, a perfect record to listen to for a Monday morning.

The Mercury Program: If you’re out there contact me[jakub *t iso50 d*t com] I want you to do a Tycho cover for his LP or if you want to play in Brooklyn, NY.

The Mercury Program – Arrived/Departed – BUY

The Mercury Program – Stand & Sing – BUY

Woah, this stuff is great. I wasn’t around for the first post, so this is the first time hearing them.

Might have to track down that album…

Hey Jakub,

Tom from the Mercury Program here. Thanks a lot for the post.
I’m a big ISO50/ Tycho fan, and am lurking around here pretty much daily.
I’ll contact you directly to discuss some of the other things you mentioned.

Artwork:
Somewhere along the way the cover art got a weird conversion – (looks like a browser rendering of a CMYK file). Since most/all of you who read this blog are a bit more discerning than the average bear – here’s a link to a version that is a little closer to correct.

Thanks again – I hope you all enjoy the record.

P.S. Thanks for the heads up Marc.

TMP is such a great band. Surprised there are so many newcomers to them, but who cares—they deserve all the attention. Class act fellows as well.

I really liked the percussion on Stand and Sing. This is my first time listening to The Mercury Program and it’s nice. I like it. Fluorescent Laces reminds me of a funky sounding Pachuca Sunrise by Minus the Bear.

Mercury Program is one of Florida’s most amazing bands. When they released their last record a friend of mine and I followed them around the state cause we thought it was going to be their last tour. Let me tell you one of the best moves of my life. I also can’t wait to get my hands on this new record. I know it will be a destroyer.

Ah, great stuff. I swear I’m challenged in some way when it comes to finding good mellow music for mellow times, this is exactly what I need.

Keep doing it the way you’re doing it now.
