On the heels of their second EP »Fever Canyon«, San Jose-based instrumental post-rock duo In The Ponds will release their third EP, »The Last Stop Ranch« this coming September.

»The Last Stop Ranch« works with a classic rock tone palette – sizzly SG humbuckers and wobbly delays, to name a few primary colors. For the band, discovering the tracks was like stumbling across the mouth of a cave; something about it makes you crane your neck towards the dark. This is the music they imagine you’d hear from a dried-up well if you lowered yourself down and listened to what the walls had to say.

»The Last Stop Ranch« was recorded by guitarist David Perez and mixed by Art Bertik. The front cover artwork was created by bassist Jennifer Gigantino.

In The Ponds is a poet and a filmmaker getting married and starting an instrumental post-rock duo during pandemic lockdowns and California wildfires. It’s a honeymoon spent in quarantine, staring at soot-filled skies wondering how to capture feelings of isolation, dread, and love without using words. Their music pays homage to classic rock while experimenting with atmospheric textures for a sound that’s both familiar and otherworldly.

“In The Ponds…are perhaps one of the best upcoming instrumental Post Rock bands currently out there and I’m excited to hear what they will release next.” — Outlaws Of The Sun (Steve Howe)

“In the Ponds would be the perfect heir to Ennio Morricone’s throne…there is some brilliant playing from Perez, who is more than equally matched by Gigantino, as she provides a sturdy bass backdrop for her husband’s flights of fancy. There is psychedelia dotted in along the way, as well as some cool ass acid rock, which both serve to enhance the band’s unique take on the post-rock genre.” — The Sleeping Shaman (Reza Mills)
