Bronco
New - LP - 19439977281
Sealed 2022 2LP Gatefold Original, US Pressing. Includes Custom Printed Inner Sleeves. "If You're Going To Reinvent Yourself, There's No Point In Being Shy About It, And Orville Peck Has Learned That Lesson Well. Transforming Into A Cosmic Cowboy Took Vision And Hustle, And Peck Has Not Only Made It Work, He's Shown He Knows How To Grow Within His Persona. Peck Has The Talent To Pull It Off As A Vocalist And A Songwriter, And As Strong As His 2019 Debut Album Pony Was, 2022's Bronco Builds On It In Every Way. If The Sonic Vistas Of Pony Evoked A Classic John Ford Western, Bronco Takes Him From Stagecoach To The Searchers, With A Bigger, More Colorful, And More Nuanced Variation On Those Themes. It Helps That Peck Had Greater Resources At His Disposal This Time Out, And Working With A Major-label Budget Allowed Him To Record At First-class Facilities In Nashville, And Augment His Road Band (Which Includes Members Of The Canadian Indie Rock Band Frigs) With A Number Of Session Players And Punch Brothers Banjo Picker Noam Pikelny. In This Case, The Extra Money Went Toward Detail, Not Excess Gloss; Bronco Maintains The Spirit And Sound Of Peck's Debut, But Builds On It With Added Instrumental Details And Atmospheres, And He Wisely Does So Without Cluttering The Landscape, Still Leaving Enough Space For The Dynamics That Serve This Music So Well. If Anyone Feared Peck Would Fall Victim To The Sophomore Slump, He's Dodged That Bullet With Style On Bronco. He Has No Trouble Writing Songs That Have The Dramatic Sweep His Roy Orbison Meets Morrissey Voice Demands, And As A Lyricist, He's An Effective Storyteller Who Doesn't Shy Away From A Dollop Of Melodrama While Still Making His Characters Ring True. The Artfully Woven Queer Subtext Of Pony Is Present And Accounted For, While The Universality Of His Lonely Cowboy's Mingled Desires For Independence And Companionship Will Make This Speak To All Sorts Of Listeners. And While Songs Like "Daytona Sand," "Lafayette," And "City Of Gold" Fit Pony's Template, The Caffeine-addled Rockabilly Of His Road Diary "Any Turn," The Countrypolitan Grace Of "C'mon Baby, Cry," The Spectral Acoustic Arrangement Of "Hexie Mountains," And The Twang-infused Rock Of The Title Cut Demonstrate This Cowboy Can Go Anywhere He Pleases And Make Himself At Home. Orville Peck's Image As The Glamorous And Subversive Masked Man Of Country Music Still Feels A Bit Gimmicky, But In The Grand Show Biz Tradition, It's A Character That Puts The Spotlight Firmly On A Genuine Talent, And Bronco Is A Glorious Achievement That Fulfills Peck's Promise And Then Some."

Pony
New - LP - SP1293
Sealed 2019 Standard Black Vinyl Pressing. ""You A Real Cowboy?" "Well, That Depends On What You Think A Real Cowboy Is …" That Bit Of Dialogue From Urban Cowboy, The Movie That Turned Country Music Into An Unfortunate Sort Of Mass Market Phenomenon In The '80s, Comes To Mind While Listening To Pony, The Debut Album From Canadian Vocalist And Songwriter Orville Peck. Peck Sure Knows How To Dress Like A Cowboy, He Has A Voice That's Big As All Outdoors, And He Can Write A Melody With The Dramatic Sweep Of A Classic John Ford Western. But That Fringed Mask Peck Wears, The Guitar Figures That Evoke Shoegaze And Goth Sounds As Much As Vintage Country & Western, And The Casual References To Getting High With Hustlers, Sexually Ambiguous Rodeo Riders, And Fellow Cowpokes Calling Him Pretty Make It Clear Peck Is Not About To Become The New Marty Robbins. But As An Artist Who At Once Embraces And Subverts The Tropes Of Classic Country Music And The Iconography Of The North American Cowboy, Peck Delivers Some Of The Most Enjoyable Cultural Détournement Since Robert Lopez Transformed Himself Into El Vez, And He's An Even Better Singer. Peck's Instrument Suggests Some Fortunate Cross Between Elvis Presley, Chris Isaak, Roy Orbison, And Morrissey, And If His Delivery Is A Bit Melodramatic In Its Swagger And Brio, It Suits The Material, And His Pipes Are Strong Enough To Make It Work. Peck's Melodies Run The Gamut From Sweetly Sad To Cheerfully Defiant, And The Production And Arrangements Make The Performances Sound Spacious, Dynamic, And Powerfully Satisfying; While The Subtext Adds To The Drama Of This Music, You Can Listen To This At Face Value As Western Music For 21st Century Cowboys And Still Enjoy It Tremendously. With Pony, Orville Peck Could Probably Get Over On Sheer Audacity, But His Talent Is As Impressive As His Ideas Are Smart And Unexpected, And This Is One Of The Best And Most Fascinating Debuts From An Alt-country-adjacent Artist In A Very Long Time. If Orville Peck Doesn't Redefine "Urban Cowboy," Then In All Likelihood Nobody Can." AMG Review By Mark Deming. more
