North Elementary

The Chapel Hill quartet of North Elementary play, in the tradition established by their hometown at the end of the 20th century, eclectic alternative/indie pop/rock. John Harrison, formerly of the Comas, wrote most of the songs on their 2002 debut CD Out of Phase. The band also includes another ex-Coma, Margaret White, who was also in Sparklehorse when the album was released.

As 2006 melted into '07, North Elementary and producer Alan Weatherhead (Hotel Lights, Sparklehorse) were busy patching together a record weekend-by-weekend at Weatherhead's Richmond, Va. studio. The result, Not For Everyone, Just For You, is the Chapel Hill, N.C.-based North Elementary's most complete artifact yet. And for two years, it collected dust. The band recorded and released a whole separate album, 2007's Berandals (Pox World Empire) after finishing NFEJFY. False starts and missed connections plagued the record, putting the release date farther and farther into a nebulous "eventually." Eventually is now. Check It Out!
