Brad Hebert Amazing music! There is something indescribable and very special about this band. Their discography is a huge, multidimensional puzzle that is so rewarding to piece together. This album is a great place to start. Favorite track: The Autumn Wind Is a Pirate.

about

Less than 2 years after the untimely death of guitarist/producer Phil Bonnet, CHEER-ACCIDENT has finished work on its 9th album, Introducing Lemon. Emboldened rather than diminished by the loss of Phil, the group has grown roots from the seeds of its extensive history... recording, performing and touring more voraciously than at any other period.

If there are two types of music, CHEER-ACCIDENT adeptly defies them both. Informed by King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Gentle Giant, Charles Ives, Miles Davis, The Beatles, Steely Dan, Martin Mull, machines, insanity, people... CHEER-ACCIDENT effortlessly makes transitions from hypnotic minimalist drone to dissonant jazz improvisation to deconstructed progressive rock, often during the course of a single song. And then, amidst these gestures, intersperse light upbeat pop tunes, like sprigs of mint garnishing a daring, multi-coursed meal.

Introducing Lemon features the broadest range of styles, influences and instrumentation ever to appear on a CHEER-ACCIDENT record. Blazing riffs and rock guitar. Moog, vibes and violin. Baritone sax leads to an infectious horn-infested funk section. Riding, maniacal drum grooves and anti-grooves share sonic space with down-home acoustic slide guitars. Trumpets, melodicas, tack piano, flutes, tape collages. Bold upfront vocals. Introducing Lemon is a special album.

Through its extensive and productive history CHEER-ACCIDENT continues to perfect and expand its amphibious blend of well-crafted music, performance and social experimentation. Love it or hate it, even love-to-hate it, this is an unforgettable series of moments, a challenging and rewarding encounter for anyone enticed by music that demands to be experienced.
