MANUOK LIVE Aug 5 @ Survey Select

MANUOK rocks the house on Thursday, August at the “Survey Select” exhibition space. MANUOK is Scott Mercado who has tenure in the music industry, collaborating with such bands as the Black Heart Procession, the Album Leaf and Tristeza. Oh, and Scott worked on the Scribble.08 soundtrack, scoring “Montebello,” “The Old Horse” and “Carcerate” which now appear on the highly anticipated album, “The Old Horse.”

MANUOK’s new album, “The Old Horse” is a solid effort introducing fans of indie rock to a well-written and composed album. Take a listen and you will find an album that celebrates the narrative tradition from beginning (“Cold Winter”) through the closing track (“Untitled”). Smooth melodies, driving guitar and an interesting assortment of instruments—all composed, arranged and for the most part played by Scott Mercado. If I was a beat writer in the music scene authoring articles for “Rolling Stone,” “Alternative Press” or “Spin” (you get the idea. . .), I would place 5 stars on the cover of this record produced by Macaco Records and 500 Records. It is a complete effort.

“Survey Select” premiers MANUOK and their world debut of “The Old Horse” 7 pm to 12 Midnight at 1400 Imperial Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101. (featured artwork by Joseph Hart).
