Sound Advice: Mercies, the Sultana and Among the Cranes at the Hi-Tone Cafe




Tomorrow night (Wednesday, August 29) the Hi-Tone Cafe offers an intriguing mid-week bill, as Connecticut indie-rockers Mercies join forces with a pair of promising local acts, the Sultana and Among the Cranes.

Mercies is currently touring in support of a debut album called Three Thousand Days, which was recorded in a restored barn that serves as a homebase of sorts for the group. Here's a clip of the lads playing live in "the Barn":

The Sultana is an Americana/folk outfit with occasional psychedelic and indie-rock leanings. Here's the band playing the title track from 2010's The Shooting Act EP live at Otherlands:

Among the Cranes is a new local band on my radar, and makes music in a similar indie-Americana vein. So far, I like what I hear.
