ALBUM: Zing Zong (2012)
It's been three and a half years since Brooklyn's Pony of Good Tidings released their debut, Zing Zong, and we're still waiting in hope for a followup. In the meantime, check out this gorgeous track from that record.
On "The Earth, Its Ghosts", songwriter/singer Natty Green's acoustic guitar is like a babbling stream, and the softly shuddering cello and violin complement the glassy autoharp zings. The ethereal sound fits like a glove with the supernatural imagery - Green looks forward to the Second Coming, imagining the planet literally giving up its ghosts as they fly away to "where we are drawn, where we are named". Listen below.
