The Mercury Program - 2001 - All the Suits Began To Fall Off

The Mercury Program
All the Suits Began to Fall Off
Release Date: Apr 2001
Label: Tiger Style

Experimental Chill

"Since the addition of Whit Travisano as the full time 4th member in early 2000, and with several months of national touring under their belt, the Mercury Program are now fully realized as a quartet. The songs on this EP reflect the band's comfort as a 4 piece, and are musically more textured than the works on previous releases. Tom Reno's guitars are loopy and sprawling while Sander Travisano's bass lines ground the band somewhere in the country between rock, blues and jazz. Vibes and keys take a prominent role and there is the first time addition of cello into a Mercury Program song. Unlike the previous recordings, this EP doesn't include any of the sparse bits of vocals, instead these 5 songs are completely instrumental. Whiles some songs pass the 8 minute mark, there is never a dull moment and the vocals are never missed" ~Insound
