Review: Orville Peck “Pony”

Review: Orville Peck “Pony”

August 26, 2019

It's been ages since our last show, but Erik is here to review one of the best albums of the year: Orville Peck's "Pony" from Sub Pop Records. 
Alone in the studio he'll tell tales of the hiatus, what's up for the next few months, and why this album is so dang good. The notes were written while camping in an Arizona cattle field, so you know it's authentic cowboy wisdom.
