CD Review: Archers of Loaf

All the Nations Airports and White Trash Heroes (Merge)

by

comment

These reissues of the last two albums released by the influential North Carolina indie rockers aren't as essential as the first two. But there's still plenty of buzz-saw guitars and larynx-shredding vocals on 1996's All the Nations Airports and 1998's White Trash Heroes, both expanded with bonus discs featuring outtakes and demos. The quartet's experiments with tape loops, synths, and vocoder make these quiet little victories.
