Grown Up Avenger Stuff is best described as an in your face, no holds barred, all or nothing rock band. Their sound is tight, their lyrics are in the moment, and their live shows have quickly become the stuff of legend. The energy that they have on stage can be heard on their latest CD, Sparkleton.
Standout tracks on this collection? ‘The Beat’ not only delivers the beat, but features a syncopated rap from lead singer Deirdre Kroener. ‘Pins’ is magnificent, from the intro to the last note. Deidre’s voice yells, yeps, and howls over an energetic guitar and drum riff that just might be the breakout track of the album, if not for a few other contenders vying for that coveted title. ‘Too Cool’ may be short for too cool for school. The track seems like it was written about playing hooky from school one day during the high school years. It’s easily easy and breezy. Try to sit down while this is playing.
Grown Up Avenger Stuff is a band that may not seem like they take themselves seriously, but judging from this latest release, they seriously know how to rock. They make it look and sound easy. Similar to many, and worthy to the comparisons, Grown Up Avenger Stuff is a quartet of rockers that are making waves in the fast lane. In only a few years, they have built up a reputation for energetic shows and a die-hard touring schedule. What if Queens of the Stone Age really had a queen on the mic? Deirdre Kroener, the lead singer, is not only dynamic as a vocalist, her stage presence has been known to electrify a festival or two. Hot on the heels of their CD Alive, Grown Up Avenger Stuff is back an offering that promises the same energetic rock they are known for, but harder faster bigger and more!
Grown Up Avenger Stuff.
We’ll take it.
And more, please!
