Great American Music

I host a weekly podcast called "The Great American Music Hour" (available on iTunes) featuring independent rock, folk, singer songwriter and Americana music from around the country. I have been a fan of The Pones for some time now. I fell in love with this new album the first time I heard it. This is alt-country in the tradition of Townes Van Zandt and Robert Earle Keen; in other words, plaintive and yearning, with lots of acoustic flourishes and great catch-in-your-throat vocals. There a little Tex-Mex on a couple of songs, like "Sidewalk Cafe," and a little Tom Waits in some others, like "Lost And Found." And a dark Southern Gothic sense of humor throughout. This is truly Great American Music; I highly recommend it. Jerry Jodice, host The Great American Music Hour

Pones Rule

Simply put, “Pones rule.” What’s so special? Well, the elegant-deft violin/pedal steel interplay, for one – especially unexpected in the context of the gutbucket bluesy feel Also, George’s voice – Guy Clark meets Leon Redbone, with a touch of Joe Strummer, of all people, thrown in. And yet, while there are echoes of these worthy predecessors – and T. Waits, Kristofferson, and Billy Joe Shaver, George’s voice is an original. As are these songs – wry, worldly wise, wicked fun but wistful, too. Some of my faves: “Sidewalk Café,” which seems to cross Edith Piaf and the Drifters. Really graceful violin, and terrific harmony vocals. Cinematic. “Me Gusta,” a groove-fest. “Faulkner’s Ghost,” maybe the album’s masterpiece – great visual detail, sweetness, dignity, evocative feeling. “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” perhaps the coolest I-love/hate-the South song since Neil Young’s “Southern Man.” Other standouts – “Lycurgus Say,” like the ghost of Jimmy Reed exhumed. Really sassy bass on “Ann Landers.” Rod is inventive and rockin’ throughout (nice drum recording on UTC). Mainly, what’s great is that the band sounds like a band – and the ambience is timeless, sorta old-timey but very hip, winkingly knowing. Jaded but childlike. I bet ya’ll are great live.
