This Week's Mercury Music Section

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Mar 27, 2013 at 4:28 PM


Well, we did it. We went ahead and did a Bob Seger issue (in honor of his show at the Rose Garden on Saturday). It's about what you'd expect from us: Mostly dumb jokes and weird celebrity impressions, plus a serious, excellent piece from local novelist—and Seger expert—Scott Sparling on why Michigan's favorite son matters. And make no mistake, Seger matters.

LISTEN: Bob Seger System - "Ramblin' Gamblin' Man"

Against the Wind! 1939 Ensemble make music with drums, vibes, and noise. Music in 1939 sounded nothing like this.

LISTEN: 1939 Ensemble - "Sabotage"

Stranger in Town! People can't seem to forget that Michael Nesmith was on a TV show called The Monkees. But the renaissance man has an impressive solo discography, not to mention countless other works under his belt.

LISTEN: Michael Nesmith & The First National Band - "The Crippled Lion"

Turn the Page! Local writer Michael Heald spoke to Christopher Owens about leaving his group Girls behind to go it alone.

LISTEN: Christopher Owens - "Here We Go"

Shakedown! Tampa band Merchandise came out of that city's hardcore scene, but it isn't hardcore at all—in fact, it's unlike anything else from that strange Florida city.

LISTEN: Merchandise - "Become What You Are"

The Fire Inside! The man behind the DVS1 moniker elucidates on the current state of IDM.

LISTEN: DVS1 - "Behind Lines"

Rock & Roll Never Forgets! Goddamn, we really, really, really miss the Exploding Hearts.

LISTEN: The Exploding Hearts - "Modern Kicks"

K-k-k-k-k-k-Katmandu! Plus an overstuffed sock drawer of Up & Coming shows.
