还是他们，前两天发了A data Learn the Language跟一张EP还有一张跟合作的专辑，现在补上这张From the Vapor of Gasoline.
The Mercury Program: Tom Reno (vocals, guitar, bells); Whitney Travisano (electric piano, vibraphone, bells); Sander Travisano (electric bass, drums, percussion); David Lebleu (vibraphone, drums, percussion).
Recorded at Chase Park Transduction, Athens, Georgia in February 2000.
They rock, they roar, they tiptoe on little magic elfen feet, and then they roar some more. They're probably the closest thing to honest-to-god jazz-rock since Corea and DiMeola returned to forever. And while the Mercury Program are technically not an instrumental group, the vocals are so infrequent and subdued that you're likely to miss them unless you're paying close attention.
When they're roarin', the guitar is all fuzzy 'n' in your face, while the drummer is heroically pummeling the living daylights out of his kit. When they whisper, the atmosphere is thick with vibraphones and bells, not unlike the Dylan Group. Angular melodic lines and big fat chords bounce everywhere. But the disc's unbeatable one-two punch is the dreamy "Every Particle of the Atmosphere," followed by the stunning title track. And listen up for the bowed vibraphone and cymbals.
