Now this is classy stuff! I would like to thank my friend in France, Philippe for the awesome tip of Holding Mercury´s new album "Love in the information age". I was a fan of their debut album "Downfall of an empire" from 2008 so I was excited to hear their new album. I love, truly love, their blend of new wave and 90´s rock in a modern rock suit. And the new songs impress me, you get strong modern rock in tracks like "Cancerous" and "Best of times" and irresistable new wave a la The Cars in the title track. What a great song. But the The Police-like "My very own personal hell" is outstanding, I just don´t get tired of this song. Another superb song perfect for your mixtape is the opener "I wait for no one", brilliant folks!
