2011-01-29Hailing from Georgia, Ponderosa makes roots rock on its first release, “Moonlight Revival”, sometimes bringing a 1970’s AM radio sound (“Penniless”), sometimes offering vocal harmonies layered over bluegrass/rock instrumentation (“Pistolier”). Many comparisons to other bands could be made such as Kings of Leon (“Hold On You”), Jet (“Revolution”), or Black Crows (everything else). By the time I got to track 7, I was ready for something different and “Girl I’ve Ever Seen” offers that with its melody and sweet sentiment. Otherwise what you get here is blues-tinged southern rock.
