Nashville-based garage-rock crew Chrome Pony embraces a lo-fi worldview that carries through from its appearance (T-shirts and tattered denim feature prominently) to its songwriting (its latest EP is filled with blue-collar tales of scraping by on the road) to its sound (scrappy and endearingly rough around the edges). While early efforts were more Spartan, building largely around the triumvirate of guitar, bass and drums, the band's sound has thickened some in recent times, fleshed out with Farfisa organ and trippy backing vocals.
