Dispensing sonic delicacies with great gusto, the Chicago-based band Caviar channels a symphony of rock and pop influences and inspirations into a sound as literate as it is passionate, and as instantly familiar--in an uncannily satisfying way--as it is original. Their cinematic songs have already been featured on the soundtracks Gone In 60 Seconds and Charlie’s Angels, and now, newly signed to Aezra Records/EMI, Caviar forges ahead with the release of their second album, 2004’s The Thin Mercury Sound. The self-produced, fifteen-track disc exemplifies and celebrates the unfettered musical sensibility that is pure Caviar.

Caviar was born out of the partnership of lead vocalist/guitarist Blake Smith and bassist/keyboardist/vocalist Mike Willison, also the band’s songwriters—and friends since childhood. Following several early projects together, Smith headed for Europe, spending a good deal of time in the U.K. "I got excited by electronica, and all the great British pop in London," he remembers. "It was fun to see a band like Blur straddle a lot of styles—loops and samples in one song, straight up guitar in the next—and still sound like themselves."

The Thin Mercury Sound’s lead single, the high-spirited "On The Down Low," is a "Beck high-fives Weezer train wreck." Other stand-out tracks include the U2-spiced opener "Aloha," the Lou Reed-inflected "Clean Getaway," the Coldplay-meets Echo & The Bunnymen-like "Lioness," and the lap-top symphony of "Tiny Cannibal Bites." Another highlight is the soulful "Hey Let Go," which Smith composed after hearing a rumor that John Hughes was coming out of retirement. All of Hughes’ hit films, including Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Sixteen Candles, were filmed in the Chicago suburbs where Smith grew up, and he and his friends would rush to see them to spot people they knew as extras, and places they hung out as locations. "Hey Let Go" was the song I wrote to submit for the soundtrack if he ever made another movie," says Blake.

Maybe that day will come, and for now, comparisons to other artists aside, Caviar is coming into its own in the broader musical universe with The Thin Mercury Sound. On their Aezra/EMI debut, more than anyone else, Caviar sound like themselves, full of adventurous spirit, pumped-up guitars, and powerful songcraft.

Caviar’s Blake Smith on overcoming our fear of variety in music: "On The Beatles’ White Album, for example, do you think the dignified ballad "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" looks next door at the boisterous toss-off "The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill" and says, ‘get away from me you horrible novelty song?’ Do you think the achingly yearning "Blackbird" accuses "Rocky Raccoon" of killing its lawn? Hell no. Everyone gets along fine. If Rocky Raccoon has a BBQ, then Blackbird rings the doorbell carrying a gallon of coleslaw. You actually can’t even imagine one without the other."
