ALOMR favourites and Yorkshire's very own, Ables Army have just released a goodie bag of tunes on Bandcamp.
Compiled of, you guessed it, old songs, that they no longer play live, with a couple of alternative, early versions of songs they still do. This collection gives us a glimpse into the Huddersfield trio's early days, with songs they recorded at home.
Not as raw as you'd expect from what is essentially a "Garage EP", the band's soulful, shoegazing swagger is evident, a blueprint of the throwback Rock n' Roll they would go on to produce in last year's brilliant EP, God Won't Let Me Stop.
My personal highlight comes from track 3, britpop sounding "Toluca To The North", with a catchy chorus blaring between foot tapping verses. I also enjoyed the very well placed scream on track 1 "Something New". It's always quite nice joining others as they take a trip down memory lane, and that is essentially what has happened here. For the rest of us, we have some great little songs we normally wouldn't have been able to hear before.
Old Songs by Able's Army is available now on Bandcamp, where you can name your price. Also, be sure to check out God Won't Let Me Stop on Spotify, and give the lads some support over on Instagram and Facebook.
