Another week, another Mercury music section to ignore while you are captivated by this video of Ronnie James Dio and Lemmy drinking beer on a leather couch. That's what heaven looks like, right?

Get spiritual with the holy secular sounds of Pearly Gate Music. Can I get an amen? No? Alright, fine, whatever.
LISTEN:

Pearly Gate Music - "Big Escape"

Peep the quirky and triumphant sounds of Vancouver's Frog Eyes. Also, look for our full interview transcript with frontman Carey Mercer in a bit. He's an interesting fellow.
LISTEN:

Frog Eyes - "Lear in Love"

Toro y Moi pulls the thread of music's sweater vest and unravels it all.
LISTEN:

Toro y Moi - "Blessa"

Local trio the Quick & Easy Boys have a little something for everyone. I have to agree with their description of sounding like "Band of Gypsys, Funkadelic, James Gang, Willie Nelson, and the Minutemen." I'm a sucker for a James Gang reference.
LISTEN:

The Quick & Easy Boys - "Take Your Medicine"
