The Ponys - Turn The Lights Out

With "Turn The Lights Out" The Ponys have successfully transformed themselves from a solid, albeit at times forgettable, straight ahead rock band into a group that has matured and embraced their noise and pop sensibilities only hinted at on prior records. Many of the tracks draw immediate comparisons to tamer Sonic Youth songs, but considering Thurston Moore hasn't really written a song I've given two shits about in at least five years, all is forgiven.
