Bronx Cheerleader – Psychedelic Rock from Saint Catharine’s, Ontario
If you like creative jammin’ psychedelic rock and roll, safe bet you are going to love Bronx Cheerleader. From Saint Catharine’s, Ontario, this band has a great psychedelic sound. These Canadians use dreamy vocals, great effect guitar, some steel pedal guitar, and lots of simply great music. While they heavily use guitars and vocals, they do eclecticism well mixing in other musical events in a pleasingly unexpected way.
In my opinion, one of the hurdles an artist can be confronted with is sticking largely with one genre. It is too easy for the music to start sounding “all the same”. In order to leap the obstacle, the musician must do the genre superbly well. Bronx Cheerleader is as good an example of perfectly making such a jump.
They have a good number of releases, both singles and LPs, dating back to 2005, many great tunes. They are also hip enough to offer Real Punks Don’t Sing About Girls on 12″ vinyl. They offer Tough Guy Cliches as a free download.
They do a good job mixing both traditional style elements of the genre and throwing unique and novel twists of creativity. I suggest Get Out Your Guns, Low Man and Mad Sam is Dead as great examples of their later releases. However, there is nothing wrong with their early works.
While Tough Guy Cliches is more mellow than their more recent work. Mellow, however, does not mean to imply that it is boring or any less exciting, check out the kaleidoscope of sounds and vocals on The Assault and So Nice To See You Fall.
The members are:
- Marshall Bureau – drums
- Joe Lapinski – guitar/pedal steel
- Eron Stroud – bass/keyboards/vocals
- Scott Warren – guitar/vocals
