A Kick In The Pants # 8 – Army Coach


While I suppose I could open with a line like “From the ashes of Team Stray” I don’t think that’s appropriate (albeit complimentary, as Team Stray released albums in my Top Tens of 2007 and 2008, respectively). The previous band never burned out, and Army Coach is already way beyond the flickering flames of a new act. Musically the group is rooted in 90s indie rock. Crunchy and amped to Dinosaur Jr./Superchunk levels, but catchy and accessible enough for college radio airplay. At various points Tom (singer and bassist) and Eric (drummer) nod to their past outfit, as the songs sometimes reach levels of speedy/poppy punk, but that’s just one facet of the overall sound. Take into account Andrew’s ripping mini-solos, the Steve Malkmus-esque lyrics with a John K. Samson delivery, and the production wash reminiscent of Hum and you’ve got a whole new beast. Ironically, the song that best encompasses what the band can accomplish is “I Am A Failure.” It’s off their digital EP which can be had for a mere 2 bucks via paypal direct from the band (armycoachband@gmail.com) – Mark H.
