A three piece from boston formed by the same members as THE ARMADA in 2000. The Arm’s unique sound blends awkward math rock riffs with electronica resulting in their acclaimed self-titled debut EP on Speedowax in 2005. Having played with the likes of Kid Commando, Oxes, Oxbow, Mono and French Toast, the band were included in Capsule’s SXSW compilation “Supersonic - Treats From The Heart Of England” last year, which was curated by left-field luminaries such as ATP’s Barry Hogan and Static Caravan. In June 2006 the band re-emerged with a new four-track EP, “He Builds Bombs” - on this latest release The Arm have stepped up the intensity with a relentless assault of frenzied rhythms, razor-edged guitars and acid damaged electronica. “It’s thrilling listening to these guys slam around the studio - they must have shoulders made of iron” - The Fly “One of the most original and innovative bands I have heard in a long time” - Zero Tolerance “Like a jagged mixture of Hella and Don Caballero, this is a band you really should check out” - Rock Sound Discography: The Arm EP (Speedowax, 2005) He Builds Bombs EP (Transduction, 2006) Myspace Booking Read more on Last.fm.
