Knee-jerk adjectives like ”rustic” and ”pastoral” miss the point with the Cincinnati foursome Ass Ponys. This is not country rock in any true sense; it evokes the purgatory-on-earth of the trailer park. The Ass Ponys’ fourth album The Known Universe finds them still churning out piercing stories about very real, very marginal characters who are as proud and dignified as they are defeated by diminished expectations.
