Twelve Thousand Armies, Teepee, Love Inks 

When: Tue., Sept. 18, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $5
Chapel Hill's Twelve Thousand Armies have been coasting along behind the same full-length for more than a year. It's easy to get away with that when the release is North Carolina, a fuzzy and fetching collection of comfortably crafted old-school pop. These songs twinkle with pretty piano flourishes, shine with brazen blasts of buoyant brass and frolic with shabby-chic acoustic rhythms. Justin Williams' classically constructed songs capture broken hearts that lean frighteningly close to the psychotic, distilling them into sugar-rush melodies that land with an appreciably bittersweet edge. None of it is revolutionary, but Williams' Armies soldier forward with time-tested pop-rock prowess. With Teepee and Love Inks. —Jordan Lawrence
