Pony Boy - Pony Boy EP

Pony Boy
Pony Boy EPSubmitted by: Rusty Hogan

From the Pony Boy Website:
Exploring themes of the Ol’ West and heartache, Pony Boy’s gravel-riddled tunes recall a 1950’s nostalgia and Southern Gothic Soul.I developed a bit of a routine for reviewing albums now. On the day’s I’m in the office I pick an album from the several I’ve gotten recently (these I glean by giving each one a quick 30 second or so listen, it’s got to grab me) and I’ll play it over and over. It normally doesn’t take long to figure out what songs I like and which ones I’ll be skipping upon the next listen. With Pony Boy’s self titled EP Pony Boy there wasn’t any skipping of songs. From track 1 Saints and Lairs to track 5 The Murder Ballad of Carrie Lee  each song was a beautifully crafted lyrically haunting treasure. A wonderful soundtrack for these late fall days and nights. I hope to here more from Pony Boy soon! Get this CD, I promise you’ll wear it out.

Americana Rock Mix Review - “Mergers And Acquisitions” by Have Gun, Will Travel

There isn’t much that I can say here that I haven’t already said on my show. But, to put it in more of a substantial note, here are my thoughts on this album.

It’s hard to determine what it is that makes HGWT sound so unique. With the influx of Alt. Country, Americana, Folk bands out there, it becomes that much harder to develop a sound that will cut through the noise. Whatever that sound may be, it helped them hit a strong stride with their last album “Postcards From The Friendly City”.  Anyone who enjoys great music has already heard that album, and it’s hard to deny that mainstream radio did themselves a disservice by not recognizing how underrated that album is.

But when a band has an album that is that enjoyable, and is such a leap from the previous album (“Casting Shadows Tall As Giants”) there comes a little bit of dread when a new album is on the horizon. It raises questions like “How will this hold up?” “Was the last album just a lucky accident?”, etc.

I can definitely say that the band did not lose their stride. While “Mergers And Acquisitions" is not necessarily better than "Postcards", it is by NO means any less of the high standard set by that album.

In fact, if anything, this album proves that HGWT are aware of what their sound is, and are ready to play around with it. “Mergers” runs a gamut of situations and themes that have been in Matt Burke’s head that past couple of years. Between the exercises in storytelling like “Katharine, Don’t Fall The Wagon" and "Crooked Chords" and the political statements of "To The Victor Goes The Spoils" and "Streets Of New England" to the tales of touring like "Thirteen Miles To Empty" and "Time Machine”, this strong bevy of songs on “Mergers And Acquisitions" proves that the band is expanding on what we have come to know and love about their music.

A recent interview with HGWT frontman, Matt Burke, can shed some insight on “Mergers And Acquisitions” and can be found HERE.

Here is their latest music video for “Thirteen Miles To Empty” featuring Micah Schnabel of Two Cow Garage and Devon Stuart of The Snakehealers

Americana Rock Mix Review - “Low Down” by The Mallett Brothers Band

I am not a reviewer. I have noted this on several occasions, as I have a hard time putting my thoughts into a format that makes sense to people, outside of my own head.

But sometimes there is a spurt of albums released at one time that just makes you want to scream at people to make them aware of the awesomeness that they are more than likely missing.

This is one of those albums.

My first introduction for this album, was the music video for the album’s title track “Low Down”, which surpassed anything on their self titled previous effort. Now, that’s arguably a pretty strong intro to an album. This also left some lofty goals for the rest of album, which I hadn’t heard yet.

Honestly, I enjoyed their first album, quite a bit more than most of my peers. So when I finally received the album, I expected the track “Low Down” to be the stand out, and everything else would be on the same level as their last album. And honestly I only thought this because I heard the two Mallett Bros. albums only within a couple months of each other.

What I found was an eclectic set of ear candy that surpassed my expectations. It turns out this album maintained the road set it’s example track, “Low Down” (the song). The album ranges from acoustic riff rock openers like “Benny” to solid banjo fronted tracks like “Born Cryin’” that draw you into the album to see where their music will go next. But overall it’s the soulfulness in the voices of the Mallett Bros (Will & Luke) that makes the songs unique to the band.

This album will undoubtedly be in my Top Albums of 2011 list.

I will play a couple of tracks by them in this weeks upcoming episode. So stay tuned.

If you would like to hear some tracks from their previous album, check out episode 115 of The Americana Rock Mix right HERE.
