A Giant Dog “Lucky Ponderosa” Video/Song Premiere
“Lucky Ponderosa,” a new official video from A Giant Dog, can be viewed below. The track appears on the Austin quintet’s fourth studio album, Toy, which was released on August 25, 2017.
Following a solid year of road-dogging and woodshedding, the band is tighter than ever. The group features Andrew Cashen and Andy Bauer on guitars, Graham Low on bass, Daniel Blanchard on drums and singer Sabrina Ellis, who turns in another masterful performance, in equal parts brash, defiant, vulnerable, and raw.
Lyrically, Sabrina and Andrew make their personal frustrations and fuck-ups, fears, lusts, and addictions feel universal. While they have always given voice to the weirdos and creeps, they dig even deeper on Toy. “I feel I’ve revealed more in this album than ever before,” Sabrina confesses.
The band recorded Toy with Grammy-winning engineer Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, Cat Power, The White Stripes, Reigning Sound), with Cashen producing it. “Andrew as producer makes a lot of sense,” Sabrina says. “He composes the songs and knows better than anyone what they should sound like in the end. With him at the helm, we’ve arrived at a raw, truthful, risky, and rangy album.”
