Fourth studio album from Boston's Lake Street Dive. Side Pony draws influence from Motown's endless grooves, the grit and soul of Muscle Shoals, Beatles' melodies, the harmonies of the Beach Boys, and pop divas from Dusty Springfield to Amy Winehouse to Adele. The band's retro pop sound proves to be pretty irresistible from the start of the album. Rachael Price's emphatic vocals provide a triumphant feel to many of the songs without overshadowing the rest of the band. Includes the songs: "Call Off Your Dogs," "Side Pony," "Hell Yeah," and "Can't Stop." Twelve tracks in all. Released by Nonesuch.
