Complicated popmusic, nothing for strong nerves, rather more than less and definitely inappropriate for the youth of today…

The three still young Cotton Ponies from Eastern Germany leave the paths of their childhood heroes – Shellac, Hasselhoff, Sonic Youth – off to new shores. They are, besides Garage-darlings Zentralheizung of Death des Todes, the only survivors of the “I Love Marbach”-collective, origin (amongst others) of the fantastic agency “Eine Welt Aus Hack” (Busdriver, Felix Kubin, Iceage, Thee Oh Sees, Die! Die! Die!, Ty Segall) and Experimental-Festival “Teenitus”. After the last DIY release “Sometimes I feel like gold, but the most I feel like silver”, “Zwist” is their first real state of affairs.

Coming from the grunge- and noise-world, Cotton Ponies’ music is now more than ever an experimental netting of fragile but complex soundsculptures, intense mind-tourette and nebulous songwriting. On stage the three ponies rotate on their instruments and yell rather Dadaistic passwords at each other, with the exception of “Krypt” – the last song on “Zwist” – which actually features emotionally urgent vocal-lines.
