Space Apaches describe themselves as “kinda like a psychedelic Eagles, with a sense of humor”. Straight off the bat, this tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the Apaches. They’re fun-lovin’, guitar-totin’, All-American rockers who are serious about their music, but don’t take themselves too seriously.
Though the Space Apaches may incorporate a kind of tongue-in-cheek humor into their image and gimmick, their musical ability is no laughing matter. With Psychedelic sounds, Country Rock twang, Blues undertones, and some serious guitar slinging, they’ve crafted a sound all their own, and, for lack of a better phrase…it’s out of this world.
After the brief intro “Entry” it doesn’t take long to get a good sense of the band and their sound. “Sunrise” combines classic guitars with a modern blues beat and a dash of electronic. “In My Mind” sticks to more straight rock and roll vibe and “Empty” channels Lou Reed, the very best of Lou Reed.
I can see where the comparisons of classic rock bands comes from based on their sound, but Space Apaches is much more current and the sound is an updated classic sound. With any luck its bands like Space Apaches that will keep this genre alive and well.
