Strong follow-up to critically praised debut, which
earned placements in Shrek Forever After and Nick
and Norah s Infinite Playlist as well as TV s The
Bachelor and Greek.
After the success of Army Navy s self-released debut
album, the band entered 2010 with their strongest batch
of songs to date. They were able to self-finance the
recording of their second album, and once again called
upon producer and engineer Adam Lasus (Clap Your
Hands Say Yeah) to help bring the songs to life. The
band worked for six months, pouring their hearts into
an album with intricate arrangements, beautiful sounds,
layered melodies, and tight harmonies.
In 2008, Army Navy self-released their debut album
and quickly garnered admiration from fans and press
alike. CMJ called it some of the brightest pop released
this year and the first single, My Thin Sides, was
paired with a hilarious video featuring Paul Scheer of
Human Giant that took the blogosphere by storm. The
band found more success via indie-rock date flick Nick
and Norah s Infinite Playlist, which prominently featured
two Army Navy songs alongside artists like Vampire
Weekend, Modest Mouse, and The National. The group
has taken its dynamic live show on the road supporting
The Lemonheads, Arctic Monkeys, The Dodos, The Soft
Pack, The Like, and Cut Copy; and played explosive
shows at SXSW, CMJ, and the UK s Truck Festival. They
were even asked to be musical guests on the short-lived
Tonight Show with Conan O Brien. Now, back from
mastering with Greg Calbi, the boys are excited to get
back out and play their new songs live in 2011!
Table for one
We call them comrades.
They are unable to be with their loved ones and families tonight, so we join together to pay our humble tribute to them, and bear witness to their continued absence.
This table, set for one, is small, symbolizing the frailty of one prisoner, alone against his or her suppressors.
The tablecloth is white, symbolic of the purity of their intentions to respond to their country’s call to arms.
The single red rose in the vase, signifies the blood they many have shed in sacrifice to ensure the freedom of our beloved United States of America. This rose also reminds us of the family and friends of our missing comrades who keep the faith, while awaiting their return.
The yellow ribbon on the vase represents the yellow ribbons worn on the lapels of the thousands who demand with unyielding determination a proper accounting of our comrades who are not among us tonight.
A slice of lemon on the plate reminds us of their bitter fate.
The salt sprinkled on the plate reminds us of the countless fallen tears of families as they wait.
The glass is inverted – they cannot toast with us this night.
The chair is empty – they are not here.
The candle is reminiscent of the light of hope which lives in our hearts to illuminate their way home, away from their captors, to the open arms of a grateful nation.
Let us pray to the supreme commander that all of our comrades will soon be back within our ranks.
Let us remember and never forget their sacrifices.
May god forever watch over them and protect them and their families.
Sister's Company Party [14/52]
This is an honorary tribute to those soldiers who are M.I.A., Missing In Action, POWs, and all those who are overseas, dutifully serving the military of our nation. Each item at this table represents an important aspect of those who are currently held captive, missing, or otherwise stated. In other words, this table symbolizes the sacrifice that the US has to pay for the freedom that we enjoy today.
We are a nation at war, and sometimes we may forget that we are. But it’s for our sake that our military is fighting for our safety, and it is through their continual sacrifice that we are protected from harm.
So in regards to post-thanksgiving, I’d liked to commemorate this week’s picture to my sister, and to all those who are currently in the military, those who have served, and those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
I don’t mean for this to be a political post. I am merely stating the facts that there are people serving in our military who are away from their families over the holidays, and it is for our sake that they are there. So for that, we should be grateful that there are people who are willing to fight and die for us, regardless of the reason or circumstance. In essence, they are truly our heroes. And for that, we are honored and thankful.
