Another week, another Mercury music section to ignore while you are captivated by this video of Ronnie James Dio and Lemmy drinking beer on a leather couch. That's what heaven looks like, right?
Get spiritual with the holy secular sounds of Pearly Gate Music. Can I get an amen? No? Alright, fine, whatever.
Pearly Gate Music - "Big Escape"
Peep the quirky and triumphant sounds of Vancouver's Frog Eyes. Also, look for our full interview transcript with frontman Carey Mercer in a bit. He's an interesting fellow.
Frog Eyes - "Lear in Love"

Toro y Moi - "Blessa"

The Quick & Easy Boys - "Take Your Medicine"
End Hits: Our favorite funk number is #49, naturally.
