Weekly Nostalgia: American Football

Posted by: Adam Pfleider (10/21/09)
It's cold, windy, pouring rain and once this storm front passes through, it will drop to winter coats and chilly nights. I've decided to leave my bed only to take out my copy of American Football's self-titled and let its tracks flood my small apartment while I work a bit. In Urbana, Illinois, guitarist/bassist/vocalist Mike Kinsella, guitarist Steve Holmes and drummer Steve Lamos painted a picture that was worthy of gracing the roof of a chapel, landscaped in horns, easy drumming and guitar lines that carried the listener through. The band only released one full-length and one EP, and Mike Kinsella has since moved on to his solo project as Owen, but checking out Owen's latest discs, At Home With Owen and New Leaves, you can still hear those same graces of yesterday.

This is definitely the season for American Football. I love Owen and some of Mike Kinsella's other projects but I really wish American Football had lasted longer than one album.

lol naturally the guy with the FSF avatar would be here. It's amazing how much of a mark one album can leave in the midst of so much regurgitation going on at the time (and continually ever since...)
