Free Download / New Video: “Gave Up” by Dangerous Ponies (playing the Church on Wednesday)

Carnivalesque Philly pop ensemble Dangerous Ponies have spent most of 2012 hard at work on the followup to their 2010 self-titled debut. As summer slips into fall and the band wraps up both a lengthy tour and production, it shared a live-in-the-studio rendition of a brand new track on its Tumblr this weekend. “Gave Up” has a crunchy, punchy, aggressive rock sound that’s in line with the Dangerous Ponies we’ve seen in concert of late. Download the song below, check out the video after the jump, and catch some more Ponies action this Wendesday when the band opens for Tilly and the Wall at the First Unitarian Church. Tickets to the all-ages show are available for $12 at the R5 Productions website.

Download “Love Riot,” a new song from Tilly and the Wall (playing the First Unitarian Church in October)

Omaha indie rock group Tilly and the Wall have come a long way from when they were that tap-danced their percussion to cutesy acoustic pop ongs. Check out to “Love Riot,” the first single from their album Heavy Love (being released on Conor Oberst’s Team Love label on October 2) – it’s a bruiser, a rough and raucous rager, a song that’s the antithesis of “cutesy.” Download it below, let it rock your socks, and get psyched to see the band at the First Unitarian Church on Wednesday, October 10.
