The Mercenaries
The Last Resident In A Tourist Town (Spare Me Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Rootsy rock 'n' roll brought up on pop, The Mercenaries capture peacefulness and infectious-ness on The Last Resident In A Tourist Town. An album filled with cliches like the line "Of all the things I've lost, it's my mind I miss the most" ("What You Think and What I Know"). Even with a few things against them, they still make it fun enough to ignore their downsides, as you bop your head along to their seemingly easy hooks and simple beats. This is carefree pop-rock you can put on, feel a smile creep across your face, and know that things will be alright. I'll give it a C.
