The West Coast CD Release for Mercury Falls! Mercury Falls is a collaborative group led by Patrick Cress with Sam Bevan on bass, Roger Riedlbauer on guitar, and Tim Bulkley on drums. Please note the program for this show will be the music of Mercury Falls.
"...Mercury Falls takes as a starting point the British prog-rock/jazz nexus of bands like King Crimson and the Soft Machine, and drags it along on a pub crawl of the 1980s Manhattan downtown music scene, sweeping in influences ranging from Steve Reich and Philip Glass to Television and Sonic Youth, and maybe even a touch of Morphine. Odds are you’ll hear a different collection of musical echoes than I do, and that’s what makes this band so intriguing." - ArtFuse.org Preview Mercury Falls here.
