Marvelously, from the Isle of Wight, which may be a first for this blog. My finest discovery yesterday and a small revelation, I needed something to get me away from listening to the Regina Spektor record on loop. It was all getting a bit too emotional. The Mermaid's latest, four track EP, Everything is Yellow and Yellow is my Least Favourite Colour, is a thing of wonder, a quite splendid record. They sound like some altercation between Mercury Rev, The Beta Band and Neil Young, and their tracks rise to quite splendid crescendos. This week's recommended 'caulkheads'.
