This Week's Mercury Music Section

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Thu, Mar 1, 2012 at 3:41 PM

Another week, another Mercury music section to cling on to for dear life, as you drown in the abject terror/sorrow/disgust that comes from learning the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's only chance for fiscal survival is this guy.

AU's new record Both Lights is perhaps the closest the Portland group has come to their ecstatic, transcendent live shows. It didn't come easy, though, and it required bandleader Luke Wyland building a tiny room inside of drummer Dana Valatka's garage.
LISTEN:

AU - "Solid Gold"

Wait, the dude from Cloud Nothings is only 20? And the magnificent Attack on Memory is the group's third record? Ugh. When I was 20 I still thought Twisted Tea was a classy beverage.
LISTEN:

Cloud Nothings - "No Future/No Past"

PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY ANDREW W.K. PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY PARTY
LISTEN:

Andrew W.K. - "Party Hard"

Plus a party-hearty stack of Up and Coming shows.
