Song of the Day: High Pulp – Blaming Mercury

Seattle’s High Pulp is sharing the new song Blaming Mercury today, a song that has flashes of jagged guitars reminiscent of Red House Painters as well as hip hop drumming akin to Kareem Riggins. Both of these disparate elements cut through the hazy track, which reckons with the swirl of uncertainty and confusion that’s dogged us all these past few years. Listen to it below. “I see Blaming Mercury as a response to a society that seems to be losing its footing – one that is disengaging from critical thinking and healthy skepticism in favor of a strictly aesthetic outlook on reality,” explains keyboardist Rob Homan. “When that happens, I think shared truth becomes murky and, in turn, concepts of accountability, blame, and causality become woefully misplaced.” Enjoy the tune!
