Pink Pony — Whatever


Electronica

Joshua Boydston
With a name like Whatever, you might expect the full-length debut of Oklahoma City’s Pink Pony — a repackaging of Steven Battles’ Chrome Pony now featuring our governor’s daughter, Christina Fallin — to read nonchalant, but it’s anything but. Instead, Whatever is one of the most tailored and tightly programmed efforts to come out from these parts in some time. It’s an album that moves as well as it thinks.

Married with music

Despite having day jobs and nightly marital duties, OKC/D.C. duo Husbands overcome odds to craft blissful bedroom pop.


Music

Zach Hale

If it wasn’t for their name, you’d never know Husbands have wives and 9-to-5s. Peruse through the many singles on their Bandcamp website and the youthful exuberance with which their music brims becomes clear: Sunlit melody is often obscured by ominous cloud cover, only to burst through in a densely layered amalgam of reverb-laced guitar and soaring harmonies dubbed to the max.
