Extremely limited colored vinyl LP pressing. Yerself Is Steam is the 1991 debut album by Mercury Rev. The title is a malapropism of the phrase "Your self-esteem," and is taken from a recurring lyric in the opening "Chasing a Bee." "Very Sleepy Rivers" is supposedly about a serial killer, with the river acting a metaphor for the killer's relative calm and sudden tendency to snap. Mercury Rev, led by Jonathon Donohue, stunned the world with their debut album 'Yerself Is Steam' on Mint Films/Jungle Records in '91. Famed for their quirky, haunting, unique and accomplished songs, they are beyond easy categories.
