"MERX is the most highly-educated band of professionals in LA. Maybe that's why the members have
chosen to keep their off-the-grid musical hobby so minimally simplistic. Each one of the nine songs
on Merx's debut LP is comprised of looped synthetic drums, repetitively melodic bass and synth lines,
and post-apocalyptic Morricone-esque guitar bits. Over the top, a very tall man in a Throbbing
Gristle/Mickey Mouse/Grateful Dead parody tee speak/sings shouts/whoops like a baritone hybrid of
Ian Curtis, Nick Cave, and Alan Vega. His lyrics are simplified existential philosophies that seem
worthy of printing, studying, analyzing, and pondering for all eternity.
The songs are short, memorable, and timeless post-punk numbers that sound similar, but not
exactly like anything we've ever heard before. The band member's education obviously extends
beyond the classroom and into the rock'n'roll realm, specifically UK circa 79-81. "Merx" is a timeless
21st century record for connoisseurs with a morbid curiosities. That means you." – Permanent
