Music Monday: Side Pony by Lake Street Dive

It’s hard to believe I have quasi-successfully shepherded a tiny human through an entire year of life (well, a year after my wife did all the work for the first nine months of her life).  no-angel is sweet and silly.  Weirdly so, given her people on both sides run more to dour and ornery.  She is a mountain of a baby, tough as nails, and has the strong, careful hands of a skilled tradesbaby.  She is also known to rock a side pony.

The song itself is, like no-angel, silly and sweet.  It’s peppy, fun, and wicked good.  It’s also baby-inappropriate subject matter, so don’t nobody tell no-angel what it’s about.  The entire album is a joy, and I listened to the heck out of it in 2016-2017.  To the extent the album can be limited to a genre at all, it is as much “blue-eyed soul” as anything, but I will stick with the Americana catch-all.

Side Pony is off Lake Street Dive’s album of the same name.
