When Atlanta's Ponderosa played New York's CMJ Music Marathon last month, they shared a New West Records bill at the famed Lower East Side institution The Living Room. The entire event was produced and recorded by Jimi Zhivago and Milton Ruiz for broadcast on the XM/Sirius show From the Living Room to the Loft, heard each Sunday night at 7pm. One of the evening's highlights was "Navajo", a Ponderosa track we featured last summer when we previewed the band's latest album -- and DC pick -- Pool Party. Check out the track live from the Living Room -- a Direct Current exclusive -- and then the studio version produced by Dave Fridman (MGMT, Flaming Lips). Listen to the entire New West showcase featuring Ponderosa, Grandfather Child, White Violet and Kalen Nash when it premieres Sunday, November 25.
