#47: Jackie and the Treehorns—Do You Mind If I Wear A Clown Mask? (self released)
May 2015 release from this Virginia band of soaring indie power rock, where epic psychedelic drone meets the roar of a massive chord crunch; where choppy indie rock urgency locks onto memorable melody with a thick classic rock twist; where hard rock/metal riffing punches a hole in quirky, muscular pop hooks and trippy atmospheric blues. It’s like a mix of Secret Machines, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Queens of the Stone Age. Jackie and the Treehorns raise the bar for rock ‘n’ roll with fresh, energetic and creative songs played with a passionate professionalism. Recommended.
