2009, Lovitt Records

After a lengthy hiatus, Florida's The Mercury Program return to the musical forefront with Chez Viking, a seven-song album released by the band's new label, Lovitt Records. Undoubtedly, The Mercury Program have established themselves as one of the most exciting bands who place a premium on intricate song craft and mesmerizing live performance. Formed in the summer of 1997, they have re-emerged with a bracing mix of angular guitars, rhythmic bass lines, jazz-influenced drumming, and ethereal vibraphones.

Chez Viking is a twinkling, shimmering album whose strengths of interplay between guitar, vibraphone, and Rhodes are complemented by lockstep rhythm section. It's a fantastic combination that succinctly captures the band's bright intensity, and reveals the benefit of the extended time it took to create. The Mercury Program have reached an advanced point in its development where making intriguing sounds seems effortless, and Chez Viking is the definitive document showcasing that talent.
