This Week's Mercury Music Section

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Jul 9, 2014 at 3:04 PM

Blue Skies for Black Hearts
Another week, another Mercury music section! Time for reading and listening. When you hear the chime, turn the page.

• Does anyone care about guitar-driven pop songs anymore? Blue Skies for Black Hearts do, and when you hear the Portland power-pop band's new record, you will, too.

LISTEN: Blue Skies for Black Hearts - "It's Gone on Too Long"

• Robert Ham wrote this very good profile on Dustin Hamman of Run On Sentence, but perhaps he can be best conveyed if I describe what Hamman's carrying in his press photo. In one hand, a tiny black dog. In the other, a pineapple.

LISTEN: Run On Sentence - "Run to You"

• Have Cascadian black metal torchbearers Wolves in the Throne Room forsaken metal with their new, surprisingly ambient, synth-based album Celestite? Don't count on it.

LISTEN: Wolves in the Throne Room - "Celestite Mirror"

• No ID? No problem! Our All-Ages Action! column tells you where to go if you're underage.

• And enough Up & Coming show previews to fill any wazoo.
