Connie-Kim Ponderosa

It is a rare joy to feel utterly convinced of a record's authenticity. There is no lazy emotionalism or fatigue borne of predictable hooks to be found here. I didn't really notice it at first, but I'm pretty sure there isn't a single song about love, or about losing love, or never having found love. As with everything else about this record, Connie-Kim chose not to peddle around in the crowded shallow end of the pool, but instead ventures out and captures snapshots of moments that would otherwise have, it seems, gone unnoticed. And in crafting little worlds out of each of them, I couldn't help but feel completely drawn in. There is an earnestness here, a directness that seduces. Connie-Kim is a reporter; and like any good reporter she knows better than to let the story become about her. At the same time her vantage point is unique, rendering the unseen suddenly visible through what seems like little more than a slight shift in view, at scales that range from the tiniest wonder to an expansive vista. She delights in the odd for what it reveals, not as an object to fetishistically exploit. If you're looking for background music to your life, I would suggest you move on. If you happened on this record and are ready to spend some time in someone else's world, I cannot recommend it enough.

An analog epic in wide screen Cinemascope

Full disclosure: as a longtime Connie-Kim fan, I have been waiting for this release for quite awhile. This ten song cycle is as wide as the Wyoming sky and as intimate as her previous string-quartet efforts. CK and co-producer Mike Schmid do not spare the delicious ear-candy this time out either, but this is a different approach, subtle and indefinable. At its core are Ms Kim's essentially unique compositions, not a syllable or a note out of place, yet it all sounds fresh, there are twists and turns aplenty. Even after repeated listens I am always surprised by what I'm hearing. Currently the stark melancholy of "The Smallest Tree" is taking up residence in my head full-time, but "Lovely as the Day" is gaining as a personal fave. Give a listen. You will inevitably become a fan as well.

Ponderosa is a jewel.

Charming, mysterious, and magically alluring, connie-kim's Ponderosa is a jewel. Listening to her voice is like feeling the warmth of the morning sun of a new day. The collection of songs on this record are visually engaging, and the production is colorful and nostalgic. Using classical instruments, blending European folk, contemporary ambience and mingling with rhythmic things found in the kitchen, producers connie-kim and Mike Schmid have created an eclectic and very satisfying orchestral mix. Her melodies are beautiful. Her poetry visual and intimate. In these recordings it is clear that love is her light.
Ponderosa has been looping out my speakers for days. I only wish the songs were longer, but that is part of connie-kim's charm. Like little windows into comfortable dreams, this record is consistently enjoyable. The songs "Lovely as the Day" and "Lo-Lite" have been added to my list of classics.
