Chase Ambler is a pop punk band from Denver, Colorado.
Has their music for free. Go put it on. Turn the record or pandora down, and put on the music of summer. I’m typing this on my phone in between sets at the show they just opened at Mutiny Cafe for Living Alone and Rational Anthem, not for my personal gain, but more as an urgent message that you need to hear this. The guitar/bass brother combo shreds pedestrian chords to oblivion as drums pound hard and fast, all in sloppy youth unison for wonderful gasps of fresh air. This pop punk has a little math, but more so Space. Songs are blasts of high pitched screaming to moving bass lines and guitar tone that needs less effects than volume.
Summer Bummer is a favorite track if you’re in a hurry, the recording a high pass mix available on tape and the aforementioned bandcamp. This band will visit the Midwest and beyond as time goes on, and I’m happy to have seen the early days.
Hey All, Rooster is moving to Denver! But don’t worry your Local Hearts because I will continue to broadcast Burning the Cassette from the great state of Colorado! In addition to our continual coverage of all the talent in St. Louis, i will be adding coverage of the goings on in Colorado as well. I would like to thanks KSLU, particularly Kyler for getting back to me and teaching me the board so I could focus on producing the best show possible. Continue to submit music to me for whatever your hearts desire and take care of your damned self!
