Band Of The Day – Soccer Team


How ever did I miss out on Soccer Team’s debut album, 2006’s ‘Volunteered Civility’ & Professionalism? First off, I like to think I keep track of everything the legendary Dischord Records puts out. Second, it is the new project from Ryan Nelson who was in some other great DC bands like Beauty Pill and The Most Secret Method. With the help of Dischord employee Melissa Quinley, Soccer Team create a diverse collection of songs. Much like the other duo on Dischord, The Evens, Soccer Team’s minimalistic sound brings a moving punch. Soccer Team are a lighter affair overall though. The 14 songs on ‘Volunteered Civility’ & Professionalism carry such a wide array of sounds. Soccer Team definitely carry on the Dischord tradition of unsurpassed quality.
