Pony Up - Just In It For The Tail
Pony Up are yet ANOTHER band from Montreal. It would almost make you sick if the majority of them weren't at least great. Plus it might make bands elsewhere nervous enough to get off their collective ASSES and do something as good. Pony Up are an all female indie pop four-piece who formed quite a while ago now; 2002 in fact. So how do they sound, I hear you practically scream? Kind of your classic indie-pop setup, with a few dashes of post-Sleater Kinney rock action and songs good enough that they don't need any other soundbite worthy descriptors to get buy. It took them 3 years to release their debut EP, 2005's Pony Up!, and another to get their album done, Make Love to the Judges with Your Eyes out. As I said this would maybe be a little worrying if they weren't writing such great songs, two of which feature on their new Just In It... 7", which is out next month on Laughing Outlaw. They're currently writing a new record and should be touring here in October and November. These facts are good!
