If you haven't heard this band, Ponderosa, you need to know them. Listen, and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. You will be in love. They are out of Atlanta, a southern folkish band, like Fleet Foxes' southern brother. They came to Augusta for the second time last weekend, and once again, we were blown away by their performance. Hands down, they are the best new band I've seen or heard in a long time.
Ponderosa's new album, Pool Party, was just recently released. Matt and I had the pleasure of listening to it on vinyl, purchased at their Sky City show a few weeks ago. Ah that sweet crackle when we give it a listen. I've been enjoying that, along with their first album, and singer Kalen Nash's solo album. All are marvelous and worth a listen. Check out the above live video for a taste of the band.
