So what kind of music do you guys play?

Every musician’s very favorite question!  But since we’re here and you asked politely…

It’s easiest to list our influences, but we love so many artists from such a wide range of genres, eras, and scenes that we really have to boil it down to the ones who have the most direct bearing on our approach in The Armoires.  The top of the list might look something like this.

The New Pornographers, Fleetwood Mac, X, Gram & Emmylou, Blondie, Mates of State, Robyn Hitchcock, Elton John, R.E.M,. The Go-Betweens, The Pretenders, My Bloody Valentine, Patti Smith, Eurythmics, Pixies, Television, Violent Femmes, The Kinks, Velocity Girl, Massive Attack, Waylon Jennings, Cowboy Junkies, Belle & Sebastian, The Fall, Raveonettes, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Echo & the Bunnymen and so forth.

Tip of the iceberg and it doesn’t even dip into our penchant for the really old stuff, but it’ll do for now!
