Cheatahs / Cheatahs / Wichita

Neo-grunge / shoegaze

Minimal use of noise and electronic, but to great effect. Thick crusty power chords with downright hopeful treble riffs. Droning wall-of-sound double rhythm guitar and mixed-down vocals. Pop hook-free. Listen if you want to hear 90's alt-pop influences modernized with judicious noise.

RIYL: The Jesus and Mary Chain, Foo Fighters

1. 0:41 synth pads, windy noise, short intro to 2.
2. 3:29 "fag" at 3:44, post-grunge inspired power chords and driving beat, Foo Fighter-evoking echoing vocals and harmonies, twangy riffs, hopeful solos
3. 2:54 FCC at 2:39, up beat power pop feel with dirty chords and bright solo
4. 4:57 *dusky redolent lounge atmosphere crossed with 90's alt rock, orchestrated effect guitar over grunge rhythm, garage drums
5. 3:25 pounding hard garage rock, crackly bass riff, surf-evoking vox harmonies
6. 4:23 Beginning is a typical (for this band) medium-paced garage neo-grunge rock, then triumphant guitar fanfare at 2:59 to end with slow fade
7. 5:12 *Quarter tone-based intro riff, pitch shifted chords and STP-esque vox forming a wall of sound. Noise fade out. Trippy and crusty shoegaze.
8. 2:56 forward rhythm, short and simple, pedal-switched guitar textures and angular riffs
9. 6:03 garage grunge with shoegaze-style vocals and atmospheric effects and riffing lead guitar over droning chords, exposed 80's drum beat mid-track and atmospheric outro
10. 3:23 Clarion riff and post-grunge Alice in Chains-style vox harmony over tattered rhythm guitar drone, down tempo ride and snare
11. 4:09 Another bell-like riff over distorted p-chords and echoing tenor vox, switching pedal timbers, feedback interlude, fade out
12. 4:18 Droning wall of sound with slightly-more-forward vox, 2 rhythm guitars play a harmonic interlude followed by more WoS, fade out
