Some Army marches to Boone
Behind the scenes, it’s been an eventful year for the members
of Some Army.
In January, the Carrboro-based band issued its first official release, a short-run, lathe-cut 7-inch record that garnered positive reviews and earned the group a spot on Paste magazine’s list of “12 North Carolina Bands You Should Listen to Now.”
Better late than never, as Some Army will perform at downtown Boone’s Black Cat Burrito Thursday, Nov. 8.
Having laid low for the first half of 2012, Some Army is geared up for an explosive second, having just released a new, self-titled EP.
According to band promoter Elysse Thebner, “(The EP) is the culmination of roughly a year of on-and-off recording in the familiar garage studio, where (songwriter Russell) Baggett spends a lot of his days and nights. It documents the band’s first year of existence, revealing a group of musicians looking for new sounds by pulling together some influences that shaped their past projects, while shedding others altogether.
“Stylistically, ‘Some Army,’ falls somewhere between whispery folk, shoegaze and the fuzzy sparkle of indie pop. Sometimes, it’s all of these things at once.”
Music fans can hear for themselves Thursday, Nov. 8, at Black Cat. Doors open at 8 p.m.
Black Cat Burrito is located at 127 N. Depot St. in downtown Boone. For more information, call (828) 263-9511. For more information on Some Army, visit http://www.reverbnation.com/somearmy.
