The Grey Merchant - Avenue De Rennes Album Review

The Grey Merchant are a collective from Co. Cork. After releasing some singles here and there, the three piece shoegaze ensemble got to work on their debut album. "Avenue De Rennes" is the result of a year or more of recording in bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms in Cork City.

The album opener "The Last Transmission" definitely sets the tone of the album with it's raw guitars, emotive vocals a la The National and tremendous drum beats that really lift the song.
"Convenience" is a rockier, grungier track which again features some formidable drumming. The latter half of the song would give Dead Skeletons a serious run for their money.
"Into The West" could almost be considered an uplifting meditation. Lie back, close your eyes, control your breathing, listen to this track and by the end you will emerge rejuvenated and ready to take on the day.
"A.L.P.H.A.B.E.T Soup" stands out as it's completely unlike anything else on the album.…
