Tonight on Local/Live: Head on Electric

Head On Electric

Head On Electric plays on the best elements and attributes of 90’s grungers Nirvana and fuzz-rockers the Jesus and Mary Chain, yet for all the lo-fi wavering, Head On Electric sounds ready, steady, go and makes good use of drummer Cole Juntila’s tight percussion and Steve Deau’s equally nail-on-the-head basslines to even out vocalist/guitarist Eric Oleyniczak’s jangled-up guitar and tuneful, yet meandering wail. Plenty of reverb on the vocals add a ghostly and pensive quality to Head On Electric’s grunged-up, yet melodic, sound. Fans of now-defunct Milwaukee ensemble The Kind of Jazz Music That Kills take note: all three musicians claim past-membership to the band and bring a lot of likeminded qualities to their subsequent project. Check out Head On Electric live on the WMSE airwaves for tonight’s Local/Live segment at 8 p.m. Listen live at 91.7 FM or stream online at Missed out?
