Archers of LoafIcky Mettle (Merge)
Reunited since January, Chapel Hill, N.C., quartet Archers of Loaf unleashed this first of four LPs well in stride of the band's original tear (1990-1998). Raw as oysters on the half shell, with abrasive, transistor radio production, 1993's Icky Mettle thumps Warp's warpath between lo-fi sad sackery ("You and Me") and shitstorm post-post punk ("Sick File"). The Archers of Loaf vs. The Greatest of All Time EP ignites a bonus disc as anthemic as 1977 Clash ("Bathroom").
