Cosmic Mercy is Enjoying the Ride (and so should you)

Starting from the political blast-off of "The Long Fight," navigating through funk, rock, and fusion stylings, and closing on the rich guitar and vocals of "Getting Away With Murder," Cosmic Mercy's latest album, "Tears in the Rhythm" is an exhilarating ride that showcases the band's ripping guitar jams, tight grooves, and lush vocal harmonies.

But as soon as one encounters intelligent lyrics with a point of view and sophisticated arrangements, the question inevitably arises: does this rock? Catch a date on the band's current tour in support of the album (or is the album in support of the tour?) and the answer is instantly clear: hell, yes, it rocks! Echoes of Pink Floyd, Allman Brothers, Phish, Jeff Beck, and even CSNY blend in the band's sound…sometimes in one song.

The members of Cosmic Mercy bring impressive and eclectic resumés with them. For instance, drumming legend Zigaboo Modeliste calls Cosmic Mercy lead guitarist Ken Sealy "One of the Bay Area's best kept secrets." He ought to know, having had Sealy as his guitarist for years. Drummer Michael Oliver's CV is as diverse as stints with Prince alum Miko Weaver, South Bay mainstay DB Walker, and Eddie Murphy (yes, THAT Eddie Murphy).

For more than 18 years, guitarist/composer/vocalist Eric Cragin has shepherded Cosmic Mercy through two CDs and countless performances up and down the West Coast, from Seattle's huge Hempfests to well-known clubs in Santa Cruz and Marin County to venues, present and past, spread across the entire Bay Area, including the Avalon Ballroom, the Paradise, Larry Blake's, Starry Plough, and Tongue/Groove.

The band's web site (http://www.cosmicmercy.com) hosts videos, pictures, and a download of "They Don't Care About You," the latest political broadside from Cragin's pen.

Lend your ears to Cosmic Mercy…they'll be treated well.

I'd take them over the Allman Brothers, to tell you truth.
Big, rich, bluesy-psychedelic sound. I notice they're compared to the Allman Brothers, but this is a more nimble and interesting sound, if you ask me. Add Little Feat to the comparisons, by the way. Yum!
