Review: Armchair Generals EP
The ARMCHAIR GENERALS make music to win your attention. "There's a lot of entertaining choices and over a million channels of content from which to choose. Our sound is Electronic/Down Tempo/ Soulful house/Hip Hop, so relax, lay back in the plush reclining seats, and listen, as we do what we do!
Founded in 2006, Armchair Generals are a rising musical trio from Long Beach, CA. USA combating narrow musical expectations with lush soundscapes. They boast soulful grooves, ambient rhythms, gripping vocals and chilled-out beats with three self-produced albums and an upcoming 2011 release titled â€oethe Jet Sectâ€•. Armchair Generals are a fast-emerging indie favorite.
As musicians, Ovane, Bebo &amp; Osoosi were removed from most of the direct effects of terrible war and financial ruin; however, the spirit of the times began reaching out to us. No matter how we busied ourselves in our own separate musical enterprises, a common feeling gripped us. It wasn’t long before our conversations revealed the following collective observation: Why hasn’t a renewed, 1960's-like revolution emerged to challenge and inspire people living NOW, in this time? Our search for artistic revolution became a catalyst for musical inspiration . . . an inspiration to create the Armchair Generals.
