NEW MUSIC: Purling Hiss | Mercury Retrograde


Purling Hiss have just released their new album Water On Mars via Drag City/Mistletone and we’re hooked on first listen. They’ve refined the noise and boosted all the great elements of psych, pop and garage rock to produce an album that embraces all the greatness of 90s guitar music from Nirvana to Dinosaur Jr to The Lemonheads. The band come out of the same loose scene as Kurt Vile and The War on Drugs.

Here’s the first single Mercury Retrograde plus a mini doco from last year that shows the band in the studio recording Lolita with Adam Granduciel of The War on Drugs for series about bands recording a song in two days.
