One of the recent additions to Exploding In Sound’s ever expanding roster is the Chicago punk band Geronimo! who really earn that exclamation point in their name with the new album Cheap Trick. That much was clear from the single we recently premiered, “Mr. President,” but just as that song played with unpredictable dynamics, the album as a whole jumps all over the place. Starting with subdued, somber rock mixed with electronically treated vocals on “Electronic Parrot,” the band moves through a set of songs that pay tribute to the experimental rock of ’90s greats like Brainiac without letting you forget the IL natives the album title honors. Stream the whole thing below.
