Tonight at the Mercury Lounge, NY'er Lissy Trullie celebrates the release of her new EP Self- Taught Learner which comes out February 17th via Brooklyn's American Myth Recordings. We caught her earlier at Santos, and she lived up to the hype that has been bubbling up since the early fall. Her songs have translated remarkably well to record; they are catchy, yet subdued in that classically-cool New York underground-rock style. (Too many adjectives? I didn't think so, clearly.) The show is sold out, but make sure to get the EP next week and keep your eye on her for more NY dates. Also playing Mercury in the early slot tonight are Paul and the Patients - we don't know much about them, but judging from tracks on their myspace they are worth getting there early to check out.
