It’s been years since Manuok’s Scott Mercado emerged on the music scene - Dave Eggers dubbed Manuok “the best new band name” at its inception - and he’s spent most of the time since on the road. After his cover of “Untitled” won praise from Sigur Ros as the best cover they’ve heard, Mercado was spurred on to work not only on The Old Horse, but also on multiple independent film soundtracks. Every moment on The Old Horse was mixed, mastered and recorded by Mercado himself and the album is a profound reaction to the death of his grandfather. There are hours of secret recordings of his grandfather’s stories and life lessons.
