Foe

by And This Army

"Beautifully fuzzy guitars with bulldozing bottom end.and Britpop-esque vocals? It's Brooklyn's And This Army, and they meld the English '90s shoegazing aesthetic with the heaviness of American atmospheric metal. It's an interesting combination, for sure.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brooklyn's true sons And This Army stand poised to administer a swift, halting kick to the weeping and flaccid portions of the nation's music scene. While some may choose to describe their sound as 'noise', 'psych-rock', 'shoegaze' or 'doom/drone', all will agree that these three young men have some unconventional ideas and they did not come to fool around.

And This Army turned heads in 2006 with the self-release of the LP 'FOE' via careful songcraft, bludgeoning power and pristine sonics courtesy of producer D. James Goodwin, who shared these eloquent words in respect to the project: "These guys are fucking sick! This record is going to fuck some heads up. Recording was simple. Distort the piss out of everything and press record! This shit sounds huge and evil. I'm quite pleased.”

'FOE' garnered a wealth of underground critical praise and caught the discerning ear of Clint Conley, singer and bassist of Boston's legendary Mission of Burma, who was also kind enough to lend a few words to the up-and-comers, "... really good schmeary sonics -- very imaginative, and real songwriting to boot! All too rare."

It is no exaggeration to say that a serious buzz has developed around this band. Due to the sheer strength of their conviction, And This Army has given hope to a local Brooklyn scene through their communal house parties, rambunctious taproom gatherings and inspiring sense of creative momentum. On an early 2007 tour of the US they connected with a wide variety of music fans who welcomed their hybrid sound with universal warmth and the occasional wild-eyed fanaticism.

Menacing noise pop
I love the tension in some of these songs. For the most part the songs are rooted in 90's alt/pop..the sonic youth kind..the dinosaur jr. kind..with a touch of godflesh guitars and machines lurking in the background ready to break thru the speakers. Not to many bands have a sound that is similiar..so kudos to them.
