Pony Death Ride
Married musical comedy duo Pony Death Ride will release their new album Cat Sounds summer 2016. As the title suggests, the album features 9 tracks all about cats! What started as an on-the-spot song about an actual cat chase in their living room has turned into a comedic themed album all about our fuzzy buddies. However, the songs aren't all nice and warm, staying true to the duo's sassy and blue old-time burlesque style. Musically, the songs range from jazzed up ditties to piano ladden ballads to punk rock and even a rockabilly-type number to keep it fresh! In the past, Pony Death Ride has received national and international attention for their hilariously subversive punk and vaudeville influenced album No Longer a Foal… Not Yet a Horse. Pony Death Ride is Joe and Jaye MacAskill, both long-time members of the San Diego music scene. Engineering the sound and graciously adding his drumming talents was Mike Kamoo of Earthling Studios, one of San Diego, California’s most talented and sought-out musical producers.
" We wrote one cat song and the cat song train just kept rolling", states Joe MacAskill. Adding Jaye: "We have two cats, so we feel we're qualified to sing on such a subject." Cat Sounds features nine tracks including "Your Cats Are Crap", "I'm a Cat Guy", and the album's first single "Grumpy Cat (Ain't All That)." After the album's release the duo will play a few select shows and then begin rehearsal for the next holiday tour. The record was once again recorded and engineered by Mike Kamoo of Earthling Studios, who played most of the album's drum tracks. The band waas joined by several talented area musicians who helped round out the diverse sound.
