Celebrating one year since the release of the Drinking Mercury album, here’s a compilation of the band’s vague attempts to salvage the year 2020. Stay safe out there, everyone!

Make sure to check out the show this week and every week! Join the group, join the party! We’re all in this together.
The pandemic delayed the vinyl, cancelled the release show, and put our first printing option out of business, but at last, Drinking Mercury vinyl is shipping! Those who pre-ordered, thank you so much for your patience! And everyone else… you can get it now! This 12 song album is one of the most critically acclaimed GTG releases – Razorcake said “they do a good job of tugging at a wide range of emotions and memories, which made for an introspective listen,” Local Spins said listening to it was “like finding some hidden classic from decades past,” City Pulse declared it “superb, genre-bending, well-crafted pop with psychedelic meltdowns” and Stratton Setlist called it “soothing waves of vibrant folk-influenced dream pop” – plus it spent a few months in the Top 5 at WYCE in GR earlier this year (and it’s still getting play). So, needless to say, we’re happy to get it on to people’s turntables at last. One minor win for 2020!
The Plurals release the third volume in the BEES EP series today – the six song collection Stumblebee. Today (6/5/2020) is a Bandcamp revenue share day and we will donate all sales made on the bandcamp platform today to Black Lives Matter Michigan. Check out your local Black Lives Matter chapter to find out what you can do to make this world a better place.
From the desk of The Stick Arounds:
We’ve taken all twelve of our singles from each month of 2019 and compiled them into one bitchin’ record. ‘Hot Singles Club’ is available now for pre-order on CD, Digital and Limited Edition Vinyl LP.
This delicious hot singles set includes seven brand new power-pop gems from the Stick Arounds, as well as a trio of cover songs and even two new studio versions of songs originally found on the Stick Arounds debut live LP, ‘Mystery Garage’.
CD and Digital versions of ‘Hot Singles Club’ will be released on February 14, 2020.
The limited edition LP is a special pre-order only lathe cut vinyl. The vinyl version also includes an exclusive 12″ x 12″ poster, plus each record is hand signed and numbered by the band. You must pre-order to get the LP. Vinyl pre-orders are only available until Feb. 28, so secure your copy today. LPs are expected to ship in early May of 2020.

Everyone at GTG is very excited to have all of the Sticks’ singles in one place AND to try out this new short-run vinyl method. Hopefully this will be the first of many limited edition vinyl releases we can curate for the folks that want ’em!
