Live Video: Pontiak

photo by Eric Gonzalez Alfaro (view set)

There’s another all-brother southern rock band who might not be filling big stadiums and singing about sex on fire but could tear the roof off any coliseum with their arena-sized riffs. Hailing from rural Virginia, the Carney brothers — Van, Jennings and Lain — have produced something like ten well-received albums filled with fuzzy, feedback-laden neo-psych stoner jams since forming as Pontiak ten years ago. Not only do they consistently find the balance between sounding both retro and new, but on their latest LP, the Carney brothers expand their range by setting vocally driven melodic ballads beside sludgy rockers, making Innocence their most dynamic record to date. Recently, Pontiak showed off their chops live in the KEXP studio. Check out the video here:
