5 new songs apiece from one of the longest serving GTG bands and the newest GTG band! Drinking Mercury recorded something like 17 songs at a cabin in Bitely, MI over the course of a couple trips in the last year and this split has the first batch of tunes to be released from these sessions. In addition to the advance single “The Market” the remaining four songs feature all of the group’s songwriters as well as a new arrangement of a traditional song. The rest of the songs from the cabin sessions will be out later this year! The Soods debuted earlier this year with some low-key releases but are now taking off in a big way with this release, featuring a who’s who of Grand Rapids musical talent. Members of longtime outfits Elroy Meltzer, Lazy Genius, The Howlers, and more are featured throughout and the result is a shimmery, tightly arranged batch of indie pop songs with an economy that would make Bob Pollard proud. Check out the album on our bandcamp page, stream it on Spotify, order a CD from our store… have at it!
