Boulder, Colorado (PressExposure) December 01, 2011 -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Colorado Based Mr. Anonymous releases his supercharged 3rd effort - Champion Sound.
Mr. Anonymous' highly anticipated Champion Sound brings the music to a new level. The newest CD is a blend of sounds that supercharge trippy vibes, energized drumming, raw psychedelia with punk attitude. Champion Sound features Ranking Roger of The English Beat fame as well his talented son Ranking Jr.
Mr. Anonymous is the brainchild of Jeep MacNichol, former Samples drummer, former solo artist and now music industry veteran leading his newest musical vision. Champion Sound takes his sound into new territory and by the sound of the tracks displays a maturity in organic musicianship as compared to the previous electronica influenced releases - Mr. Anonymous 1 & 2. The drumming on CS is very strong - one can definitely tell that the CD was explicitly oriented around percussion and rhythm.
Mr. Anonymous has produced a body of work that is as unique and fresh as anyone I have ever heard. As an underground phenomenon, an upstart so to speak, Mr. A "brings it" to Champion Sound with a fresh organic feel using only live drums, bass, and guitars and even live horns.
The sound behind the album is a mix of reggae, dub, soca, and jazz, and as the founder Jeep MacNichol states, "my approach going into the album was to create a vibe like a mix of The Clash's Black Market Clash and Miles Davis's Kind Of Blue. I wanted a raw analog punk production where the singers sound like they're sitting in the room with you."
Mr. A has an approach of being able to work with different musical influences and combine them on tracks seamlessly which are highlighted by unique instrumentation. Guest appearances by the likes of Sly and Robbie, Dave Wakeling, and Ranking Roger as well as others can be heard on Mr. Anonymous 1&2. The future certainly looks bright for the musician with live performances locally in Colorado, and consistent radio support by local stations including KGNU and Greenlightradio.com.
Mr. Anonymous' Champion Sound is a very unique lively reggae vibe that certainly deserves a listen. His band is scheduled for live dates in the Colorado area, and the CD is planned for release on the 1st of December and will be downloadable for free from the website on the 2nd of December. The band is open to booking and anyone interested should contact them.
