Album Review

Mermen, The – “We Could See It In The Distance” – [Kelptone Records]

Cousin Mary   1/17/2018   A Library, CD

Fine instrumental work from the Santa Cruz band. Excellent playing from the long established trio – Jim Thomas on guitar, Martyn Jones on drums and Jennifer Burnes on bass. Tends toward the mellow psychedelic side and causes us to ask the question – “is this surf music?” I like track 13 for its energy, some other tracks for their hypnotic trance.

How I would love to see this band live. I had a chance a couple of years ago to see them at Moe?s Alley, and I blew it. Oh well , next time.
Mmm, but is this surf music? Mmm.
