Music Recommendation: The Armoires — “Bagfoot Run”

BRUCE’S RECOMMENDATION OF BANDCAMP MUSIC

Music: “Bagfoot Run”

Album: INCOGNITO

Artist: The Armoires

Artist Location: Burbank, California

Info: This album also has a good cover of “Senses Working Overtime.” Apparently, it was one of the songs the band recorded under a series of pseudonyms. This song was recorded under the name of The Yes It Is.

“Anchored by the unique harmonies of Christina Bulbenko and Rex Broome, The Armoires present a tapestry of jangling guitar, keyboard and viola framing songs that evoke LA forerunners from The Byrds to X and the Paisley Underground, with a lyrical sensibility that is all their own.”

“INCOGNITO is the culmination of a six-month ‘secret project’ that saw the Burbank quintet release a series of singles under fictitious band names, experimenting with their own identity in order to rediscover themselves. It’s fifteen brand-new tracks encompassing originals, covers, and the dazzling variety of styles and genres the band explored while working undercover. The record is sprawling and experimental, but anchored to the singular harmonies of founders CHRISTINA BULBENKO and REX BROOME, and sounding unmistakably like THE ARMOIRES.”

THE ARMOIRES, generally speaking, are: 
CHRISTINA BULBENKO: Vocals, Keys 
REX BROOME: Vocals, Guitar 
LARYSA BULBENKO: Viola, Violin, Backing Vocals 
JOHN BORACK: Drums 
CLIFFORD ULRICH: Bass, Backing Vocals 

Price: $1 (USA) for track; $12 for 18-track album

Genre: Rock. Pop. Surf.
