Ronnie Rogers, the project of Aaron O’Neill, marks O’Neill’s return to solo songwriting after years as a multi-instrumentalist in St. Louis bands (Shady Bug, Isabel Rex, A Leaf in the Street, I Could Sleep in the Clouds, Early Worm, Yonsei). On Denim Jacket Weather, O’Neill creates emotive and grungy indie rock with big guitars and a post-country edge. While the songs’ themes vary, an over-arching worship of the electric guitar links everything together.
