Purling Hiss: "Mercury Retrograde"

Purling Hiss:

Sometimes, when you remove all the fuzz and reverb and feedback from a lo-fi recording, you realize that all the noise was there to hide the fact that the band had nothing to say. Not so with Philly's Purling Hiss, who cleared up their sound on 2013's "Mecury Retrograde" to reveal some excellent guitar hooks, classic rock'n'roll vocals, and an end result that thankfully sounds nothing like the Bloc Party track of (almost) the same name.

"Mercury Retrograde" is out March 19 off Drag City-released Water On Mars. The band is dropping by Brooklyn on April 4 at 285 Kent.
