I Concur - Able Archer AC306042
I Concur formed in Leeds at the tail end of 2006 thanks to a shared love of American indie, slowcore and post rock - bands such as The National, Low, Wilco and Mogwai.
Comprised of Tim Hann (vocals/guitar), James Brunger(drums/vocals), Toby Page (bass) and Chris Woolford (guitar), the band’s first practices created a set of songs based on Hann’s abstract style of story telling. Tracks such as ‘Decimal Places’, written about the mistakes of the South Korean stem cell scientist Woo Sung Hwak, and ‘Exits Are Blockades’, which focused on the extinction of the prehistoric crocodile, came out of these initial song writing sessions.
Two singles and an EP have given I Concur positive reviews from the NME and plays on Radio 1. This lead to being invited down to the world famous Maida Vale studios to record a session for Huw Stephens’ In New Music We Trust show which was aired in April ’08.
The debut album Able Archer was recorded in the spring of 2009 with James Kenosha (Grammatics, This Et Al, Duels). The first single from the album, Sobotka, tells the story of the ill-fated stevedores from popular HBO series, The Wire.
