Another week, another Mercury music section that's a lot less fun than Cruise to the Edge, a six-day cruise featuring prog-rock stalwarts Yes, Steve Hackett, Tangerine Dream, U.K., Carl Palmer, and more. OH SHIT YES. Buckle up, ladies who like male pattern baldness and 80-minute suites based on Shastic scriptures—this is going to be the sexiest cruise of the year.

Portland folk-rock ensemble Weinland hasn't always been able to translate the good fun rock times of their live show onto an album—UNTIL NOW.

Weinland - "Los Processaur"
• • •
Electronic artist and crowd-participation-leader extraordinaire Dan Deacon hasn't always felt proud to be an American—UNTIL NOW.

Dan Deacon - "Lots"

Portland electroacoustic folktronic outlet Cars & Trains never had an album that was titled We Are All Fire and was based on songwriter Tom Filepp's family history—UNTIL NOW.

Cars & Trains - "Black Birds in the Branches"
• • •
Longtime experimental punk band Converge never was the fourth article in these weekly Mercury-music-section blog posts that I do—UNTIL NOW. (Sorry, I guess I ran out of ideas for these.)

Converge - "Shame in the Way"

Plus a bunch of previews for Up & Coming shows that you might not have read—UNTIL NOW.
