Geronimo! – “Mr. President” (Stereogum Premiere)

Geronimo! – “Mr. President” (Stereogum Premiere)

Geronimo! have chosen an almost perfect name for what they do. The only way the Chicago punk band’s name could be stylized better is if it were in all caps and with, like, six extra O’s. “Mr. President,” the first single off their upcoming album Cheap Trick, whips jackknifing guitar riffs, screamed-then-plainspoken vocals, and a constant near-motorik drum blast into a froth equal parts psychedelic and psychotic. It’s a hell of a lot of fun, and worth the time of anyone who’s been digging the more jagged EiS bands like Two Inch Astronaut and Pile. Listen to it below and check them out on tour soon.
