TUN ~ Mercury Retrograde
Half blues, and half funk, ‘Mercury Retrograde’ is like two EPs combined to make one great album. This record captures the old-school sound textures of the ‘60s and ‘70s, while remaining fresh, with original melodies and catchy hooks that sound instantly familiar.
On their new LP ‘Mercury Retrograde’’ Seattle, WA’s TuN mine rich veins of blues, funk, and soul to forge a sound at once engaging and unique. “There was a time when what mattered most was musicianship” says band leader and principal songwriter Chris Cootsona. “Our mission is to recapture the essence of that era – and bring it to the present day.” Together with his quintet of virtuosic accomplices, it’s safe to say that with Mercury Retrograde TuN has done just that.
