Entitled The Limits of Men, this nine-track offering is previewed by the invigorating powerhouse first single "Bulled Rose," a track that is about being born into the labor force, family and power dynamics. After releasing six albums with the Seattle indie rock explorers DARTO, Merz has finally made his first solo album. This entails a collection of work is based on ideas he’s been thinking about since his teens. The nine tracks on offer cover a broad spectrum ranging from upbeat alternative with true similarities to Darto, Nick Cave and Iggy Pop to singer-songwriter elements and even a few selection for an imaginary spaghetti western soundtrack.
