Product Notes

A review by San Diego CityBeat. Podunk Nowhere Based on a True Story By most accounts, Ocean Beach is not a particularly desolate or depressing place. But the O.B. duo Podunk Nowhere has clearly spent enough time in desperate towns to deliver familiar feelings of isolation and uncertainty that inevitably lead to an empty bottle at the end of a long night. Reminiscent of a revved-up Hem while channeling the lyrical resignation of Whiskeytown-era Ryan Adams, Podunk offers nine tracks of bartender commiseration to get you through until morning. Some tracks (like \'Devious\') will set off involuntary, if melancholy, foot tapping while others (standout \'Tin Pan Alley\') follow you down as you try to \'stay a drink ahead of every curse.\' On the rare occasions when the lyrics lapse too deep into conventional storytelling (\'Soul Spinning\'), they\'re rescued by the raw sincerity of the vocals and sparse instrumentation. Ultimately, Based on a True Story goes where alt-country has always intended to venture: through the gut-wrenching struggles of an unsympathetic world where surviving means finding the strength to face another day. -Lucas O\'Connor We were honored to work with Mr Alan Sanderson of Stratesound studios in Santee, CA. He has worked with Ryan Adams, Fiona Apple, Weezer and The Rolling Stones to name a few. The music is our life recorded. It is also for anyone who needs it. Music heals. Music Changes. Music takes you to a place only you can feel. Podunk Nowhere.
