Archers of Loaf - Icky Mettle
Talk about 90's indie rock Archers of Loaf were right in the thick of it. While never reaching the heights of some of their contemporaries they had a minor "hit" with "Web in Front". Whats nice is they were just angular enough to push through the pack yet still had the songwriting chops to be catchy, really a hard line to walk. With several decent releases under their belt they had cemented themselves as a fixture along with fellow Chapel Hill NC Alumni, Superchunk and Polvo. Some great throw back stuff here that holds its ground extremely well in 2011.
