Pretty Things Walk Pretty Things Walk CD (2007)
CD $15.39 Buy It  Details
Mercers albums Pretty Things Walk THE DEBUT ALBUM FROM AUSTIN'S THE MERCERS _____________________________________________________________ FORMED FROM THE STILL-SMOKING ASHES OF CHOKING AHOGO IN MAY OF 2006, THE MERCERS CONTINUE TO BUILD ON THE BAND'S PENCHANT FOR MESMERIZATION While comparisons to early Peter Gabriel, the Who, and Guided by Voices are apt, the Austin group is perhaps most proud of the occasional country influence. "Combining our brit-pop inspired melodies with the occasional pedal steel or country/western chord progression gives our songs a sort of eerie quality" says front man Peter Wagner. "We're from Texas, but it's obvious our minds have wandered elsewhere." Peter, born and raised in Austin, met the Ray brothers in college through a shared membership in several bands with Bryan Ray.

Delivering (and then some) on the promise of their debut as well as frontman Peter Wagner's former band Choking Ahogo, Hovercraft is as well polished, well written, well played, and well recorded as any indie record released this year. Potential hyperbole aside, one can only hope that the rest of Austin catches on before it's too late and the band disappears for another year or two to record again. Over the course of thirty minutes and seven tracks, The Mercers manage to craft a sound that lies somewhere between the picture-perfect sheen of The Shins and the driving power of The Who. Years ago, with both Choking Ahogo and early in The Mercers' career, Wagner wrote fractured indie rock gems and fragments of hooks that practically screamed fledgling Bob Pollard. Fast-forward to the songs on Hovercraft and it's not hard to figure out that Wagner and his band mates are the benefactors of a little maturity, some patience, and a lot of musical growth.
