Soldiers Of Fortune (5) – Early Risers
EARLY RISERS is Soldiers of Fortune's second album, and both are on Mexican Summer. They have been called a NYC hard rock improv collective, and we really really hate that description.
The band consists of Brad Truax (so many bands, but dude, Interpol?), Kid Millions (Man Forever, Oneida), Barry London (fuck yeah Oneida), Matt Sweeney (Chavez being his LEAST well-known operation should tell you something), Jesper Eklow (Meandering Tedium, sorry, Endless Boogie), Mike Bones already, and the elusive Papa Crazee (heavy early riser in team Oneida).
On this album the superior vocal stylings of the band's Healer, Shaman and Answer CLARK "YEREMIAS" BRONSON, STEPHEN MALKMUS, CASS MCCOMBS, DAN MELCHIOR, ETHAN MILLER and MATT MCAULEY were also enlisted. The result is the sound of utter confusion and unfocused tender hatred in song form. Meaning, we are truly obsessed with this album. Not that we ever listened to it all the way through, but we're a label that TRUSTS THE ARTIST. You should too.
