Mercury Rev
Mercury Rev
Alternative rock band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1989.

Started as a collective to provide soundtracks for student films the band debuted in the UK as exponents of a psychedelic and experimental breed of indie rock, gradually revealing a more melodic, bittersweet sound. Frontman David Baker left after the second record, Boces and later recorded an album as Shady.
It wasn't until 1998 that the band came to mainstream media attention, after further UK touring with their album Deserter's Songs which was given "Best Album Of The Year" award by NME.

Beth Orton
"Singer/songwriter Beth Orton combined the passionate beauty of the acoustic folk tradition with the electronic beats of trip-hop to create a fresh, distinct fusion of roots and rhythm."
- Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide

Sugaring Season, Beth Orton's first album in six years and her Anti- Records debut, is available now. Recorded in Portland, Oregon, with producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists), the album bears the fruits of a period of introspection & renewal.l: deeply lyrical songwriting, a newfound expressivity of voice, and, more than ever before, a daring synthesis of her broad musical influences into a powerfully individual artistic vision. "I stretched myself as a singer on this record and used voices I never have before as a writer," she explains. "A lot of the writing on this record happened in the dead of night, when spiders mend their webs, with an infant asleep in the next room... as a result, my writing became a secret again: illicit and my own."
