Track 5, off the self titled 2007 release by The Mercies from Rochester, New York. The Mercies were: Mike James (Longwave, Mikey Jukebox, The Demos), Adam Ford (The Demos), Brandon Lown, & Jonny Stevens (1mm). The record was co-produced by the band & Bill Racine (Phantom Planet, Mates of State, Miniature Tigers). The record was released to good reviews and widely overlooked due to the band splitting only months after the records release.
