NXNE Friday: Mercy, the Sexton at Rancho Relaxo

I think Mercy, the Sexton have doubled in size since I last saw them, two CMW’s ago — their number of band members, that is, not their individual girths. I’m okay with that though because they’ve kept the sound, and I enjoy their brand of power pop, with its 80s influences not brandished too obviously. Two other points in their favour: they’re fellow Newfies, and watching Rajiv Thavanathan play is always fun.
