Mercury Rev is blasting back into the collective consciousness this year with the news of not one, but two albums to be released this Fall. The first album will be a traditional release, the second one's free.
Snowflake Midnight will be released on September 29th, 9 songs with the crusts cut off, available in stores and online. On the same day however, they'll release the free album Strange Attractor as an MP3 version. The only cost will be to sign up for the band's mailing list.
The last offering from the band was The Secret Migration in 2005. By all accounts from the band, Snowflake Midnight will be an evolutionary step down the same path.
"The entire album sequence appears to be a resplendent fractal, folding in upon itself, into something continually new, unpredictable and spontaneous, and yet, paradoxically at times so subtly self-aware, never failing to resemble itself in the whole... " reads the announcement on the band's web site. What a trip it will be.
