Indie stalwarts Archers of Loaf made a career out of supplying Generation X with thoughtful, distorted noise-pop. The Chapel Hill, NC, four-piece—led by sometime Athenian and Crooked Fingers mastermind Eric Bachmann—rose to underground fame during the early-‘90s alt-rock boom, issuing four albums before tiring of the constant record-to-tour cycle. After a surprise return to the stage in 2011—which begat a double live album released earlier this year—and a sensible catalog re-issue by North Carolina label Merge, the band is set to hit the road once again, stopping by the 40 Watt this Saturday. Local trio Monsoon will provide opening support.
