Yesterday I began listening to Poni Hoax. I received an email from the Tigersushi Records mailing list, the label of a lot of electro weirdness from the old place over the sea. They are also home to art/synthy rockers Poni Hoax, who just came out with a new album in May called Images of Sigrid. I watched this video of them playing a live set, all Bauhaus and Bowie, and I thought to myself, wow, these guys are kind of good.
I then listened to the album. I thought to myself, yes, very good. Lots of space, lots of power and noise when the playing gets fast and business-like. Synth lines, long croons, and songs about women and disaster. And they are playing July 5th at Studio B.
