SHEER MAG + PENGPENGPENGUIN
SHEER MAG (USA)
The Philadelphia band Sheer Mag walk an interesting line. They play bluesy, choogling, Camaro-revving classic rock — straight-up Dazed & Confused-soundtrack cruise music. But they’re a DIY punk band, so they play it scrappily and noisily, with the lowest fidelity you can imagine. That’s a tough combination to pull off, but Sheer Mag do it, thanks largely to the huge voice and charisma of frontwoman Christina Halladay.
“Sheer Mag is nothing less than hard rock-inspired power pop perfection. Think Fleetwood Mac meets Thin Lizzy and teams up with Suzi Quatro for a rampage!"
