The Mercury Program
track: Marianas by The Mercury Program
I finally got on the Pandora bandwagon, and I can't tell you how amazing it is. It's like radio and a psychic reading wrapped in one.
Anyhoos, in my Tortoise radio, this nice little track slipped in. At first glance, I thought it was Tortoise, but the sound was a bit more ambient-y/less bass. I looked up the group, The Mercury Program, and found a lot of love/hate for them. I think there are many Tortoisefan-haters, but as a huge Tortoise fan myself, I'd say there is room for this sound to expand.
It's like that time I played Eno's Thursday Afternoon on a loop for three days. I could really get into this.
