Heartworms has more of a home-brewed feel, heavy on Beach Boys grandeur, New Wave kicks, squiggly synth-pop and warm-weather soft rock – with lyrics tenderly balanced between midlife malaise and youthful romanticism. The result is some of most charming music he’s ever made. Elsewhere, the lightly psychedelic “Fantasy Island” finds Mercer looking for heart worm disease prevention copperfield with tortures of his own, nose-deep in vermouth and self-pity. But his solipsism has always been as gentle as his melodies.
