PONY BOY COVER LIKE A FIELD OF FULL NEWLY CHRISTENED ASHTRAYS BILLOWING SMOKE LINES INTO THE MIDNIGHT AIR
… Bradanini’s voice is strong and sexy (a few Cat Power comparisons are plausible), and her music is best-suited for fans of old westerns, romanticized outsiders (check the S.E. Hinton-inspired name), Springsteen’s Nebraska and Tom Waits.
Pony Boy tackles “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings” from Father John Misty’s brilliant Fear Fun, and she succeeds in turning it into a sexy, gothic gem. Bradanini’s delivery complements J. Tillman’s stirring lyricism to pull off a murky graveyard vibe, like a field of full newly christened ashtrays billowing smoke lines into the midnight air.
