Listen to our podcast preview of the new Armory album.Though Lawrence’s The Armory has performed more than 50 shows since banding together in 2005, the group never quite got around to recording a proper LP—until now. “The New Depression” is hardly a downer of a record despite its doom-ridden moniker. Its 10 songs clock in at just less than 25 minutes, but nary a verse is executed without deliberate intention. One could toss around the usual points of reference—Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, Nirvana, Trail of Dead – but mostly it’s the sound of a college-town garage band honing its chops and having a blast. Drummer Pat Egger recently relocated to Rhode Island to attend art school, but he's back in town to spread Christmas cheer and deliver Armory albums to all good children.
