Raw, swirling, and remarkably brash, Archers of Loafs debut, Icky Mettle, helped to establish the North Carolina band as a force to be reckoned with in the pantheon of '90s indie rock.

The strain in Bachmann's voice as he sings clearly, this is your loss in prescient hipster diss Plumb Line is devastating, a crack of self-doubt that masterfully undermines the pointed decisiveness of Bachmann's language. Archers of Loaf have long been plagued by unfavorable comparisons to Pavement, but that's just an occupational hazard that everyone in a scene suffers when its golden child has been picked, arbitrarily or otherwise. Everything about this album plays well on paper and on first listens. Icky Mettle puts its best foot forward right out of the gate. Web in Front is the first song here, and it is a gem to end all gems, perhaps the best song to have come out of that decade's MidwesternNorth-Eastern glut of first wave indie music. The album hits almost as hard soon after with Wrong, though that song never gets as ardent as when the opening riff and first verse rush you. Indie Rock. Band Name Archers Of Loaf.
