Army/Navy Find A Copy Of “C86” At The Thrift Store

The L.A. band Army/Navy were pitched to us as a “new indie pop gem,” and if there’s one phrase that will get me clicking on the MP3s in my e-mail, it’s that one. (Publicists, take note.) “Saints,” which we’ve posted below, is a shimmery bit of jangle that sounds like the offspring of distorto-pop heroes Teenage Fanclub and Tiger Trap (the harmonies on the chorus make my knees weak); if you’re into that, you should definitely check out “My Thin Sides,” which is on their MySpace page and which sounds like a lost Orange Juice track that’s had about 50 layers of distortion added to it. Seriously, I could listen to songs like this from now until the end of time:

Army/Navy – Saints [MP3] Army/Navy [MySpace]
