“Submarine” reminds me of a thing the kids in Mawrcrest might’ve eventually produced had they clung to their conservative, Whisker Music-esque values for several years more. Chill as turtles in sun, “Submarine” doesn’t seem in hurry to go about anywhere. In fact, Science, I feel I’ve remarkably gained time by listening to it. That 5:30 becomes 5:25 or whatever. I bet “Submarine” sets even big brawny big guys to bed.
Compare that to a livelier “Down to the River” and you get good sense of the range of Pony Trash, a Minneapolis/St. Paul-based club readying the release of their debut collection — an EP — around Thanksgiving. Though I’m not yet with it to offer my full review, I’m compelled to gloat some about a handful of tracks off the EP that appeared in my inbox a week and a half ago.
