BRONCHO, from Oklahoma, play a kind of nonchalant, grimy garage punk that might be more closely aligned with Bushwick or San Francisco. Theirs is a sound that is easily digested, infinitely catchy, and tailored perfectly to the limited attention spans of well air-conditioned summer crowds. This night at Glasslands gave the band an opportunity to run rapid-fire through another after another of two-minute burners, each with a ready-made hook and a sarcastic wit. Songs like “I Don’t Really Want to be Social”, “Try Me Out Sometime” and “Can’t Get Past the Lips” were among the highlights of this set, which focused on material from the band’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips. This was a high-energy set start to finish, punctuated by the yelps of lead vocalist Ryan Lindsey. Summer’s the perfect season to wrap your ears around some BRONCHO, and they’re swinging through the Midwest and California for the rest of summer, followed by the south in October, so if you’re in the path of their tour, check it out!
I recorded this set with our house rig at Glasslands, a Studio Projects LSD2 large diaphragm microphone and a soundboard feed from Jeremy, the engineer at Glasslands. The result gives you all the high-energy feeling of being there. Enjoy!
