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.

This week’s episode of The LumpCast features the music of Sincerely Iris, Steve Goodie, The Great Luke Ski, TVs Kyle, The Texreys, and more! Listen to it now!
While I like the traditional Christmas music, I really like when artists do new unique tunes. As The Indie Guide points out, it is also an excellent way to get your band noticed by new listeneres. I bet you will want to check out Atomsplit after you hear the original tunes they did. They added to it being a kewl yule.
I also like more modern versions of traditional music. That is what this episode is about. We will feature more upbeat and modern, less traditional music in this Christmas special. While we shall do many traditional covers, they will be a new and upbeat take on the traditional songs. I shall also toss in a few excellent more traditional sounding tracks. The goal is modern and Christmas which leave me some poetic license in this new media order.
If the artist is available on Mevio’s Music Alley, (MMA) will take you there. Hope you like the modern versions of some of the classics.
