Army Navy - Army Navy - 2006

In the tradition of the Posies and Teenage Fanclub, Army Navy crafts energized, melody-driven blasts of power pop. Vocalist Justin Kennedy launched the group upon his move to Los Angeles, having left Seattle after playing alongside Ben Gibbard (the future frontman of Death Cab for Cutie) in the band Pinwheel. With the help of bassist Benjamin Gaffin and guitarist Louie Schultz, Kennedy began shopping his new material around California, eventually piquing the interest of producer Adam Lasus. The group decamped to Lasus' studio to record The Fever Zone with iconic drummer Pete Tomas (of Elvis Costello & the Attractions fame) serving as a temporary drummer. Missouri native Douglas Randall climbed aboard upon the album's completion, allowing the group to play shows alongside the Arctic Monkeys and Wolfmother in support of the record.-AMG

Shame that this one had to be taken down before I could get it. I like what I hear based on the Myspace clips and various reviews though, so if I see it in a store, I'll gladly pick it up.

Any chance of getting Gary Valentine "tomorrow belongs to you" CD??

Though I love TFC and the Posies, I wasn't grabbed by much on here - worth a listen but on the lightweight side, I'd say.
