capture5-2

Seattle dusky post-rock quartet MERSO is streaming their new album ‘Red World’ in its entirety over at Impose today and will be celebrating the release with a show at Black Lodge in Seattle tomorrow as well as hitting the road for a string of tour dates the following week. ‘Red World’ is available in both a beautiful 2LP package that includes lyric sheet and colored and classic black vinyl options as well as digital formats.
MERSO‘s debut full length has already stirred up quite a bit of buzz and excitement from the blogs and critics from their hometown and beyond, including New Noise MagazineSeattle WeeklyImpose, and more.

What people are saying about ‘RED WORLD':

“…this album is difficult to place genre-wise. And perhaps that’s the point, but either way we’re loving it.” – IMPOSE

“Merso explores everything from hooky prog-rock homages in punchy songs like “Reunion Show” to the post-rock vastness of opener “Astoria.” The three-part title track alone spans a wealth of sounds—part of Sennholz’s insistence that “genres are stupid.”  – SEATTLE WEEKLY

“Red World brings the loud, but in more controlled spurts. They have definitely given into the prog, because moments of this, sound like a modern update of early King Crimson, with some psychedelic moments, and those aforementioned controlled bursts of fury.” – NEW NOISE MAGAZINE

“Dark, dissident, and distorted…” – KEXP.ORG

Dark, surreptitious…the four gents making up the group have no trouble soundtracking the more sinister aspects of life…with a torrent of pummeling, down-tuned riffage. But they’re also more than capable of changing gears, from bewitching math-prog breakdowns to relatively straightforward psych rock.” – THE STRANGER
