MP3 Gina Villalobos - Rock N Roll Pony

ROCK: Americana, COUNTRY: Country Rock
"Hey would you look into why my heart has come unglued..." so goes the song "Foolin'' Around," from the new album "Rock n Roll Pony", by Gina Villalobos, summing up the exquisite attitude that permeates this great CD, an attitude of anti -ambition and acceptance, of anger shrouded in heartbreakingly beautiful minor chords, of beer soaked honky-tonk humility crossed with a lip biting defiance.
Gina Villalobos'' songs serve as a map to indie rock heaven, where we hear music so gorgeous, raw, and sexy we wonder why we don''t hear songs like them anywhere else. Gina''s cool guarded voice, in it''s restraint, elevates the songs to a subtle, cerebral ecstasy. Her band emits a narcotic blend of country rock and glistening harmonic shimmer, it''s a powerful seductive thing.
