Band of the Week: Army Navy

Army Navy’s an LA indie band that plays in local venues here so often that it’s sometimes almost easy to take them for granted.

That would be a crying shame though, since they’re an extremely tight pop act, both live and in their five-song debut ep.

You can hear four of tracks off of their ep over on their myspace page and see them play tonight at The Knitting Factory with Dead Science.

(Side-note: I just read that their lead Justin Kennedy used to sing along with Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service's Ben Gibbard in a band called Pinwheel, which I’ll have to look up.)

They’re supposed to be putting together a few new songs with producer Steve McDonald (Redd Kross, Beck, Be Your Own Pet), which they’ll likely play both tonight and at their show at Spaceland next month with The Spinto Band.

They're one of a handful of unsigned acts in the area who I'm really surprised don't have a record deal already. I've caught them play about three or four times now and have never been disappointed.
