“If we’ve learned one thing from the internet, it’s that people love cats and ukuleles. Now So-Cal comedy duo Pony Death Ride has a nine-track album of retro-themed cat-centric tunes. Ukes power most of Cat Sounds’ songs, but for feline lovers/haters, the sweet-toned takedown of internet phenom “Grumpy Cat (Ain’t All That)” and “Your Cats Are Crap,” show that furballs and jumping fleas belong together.”
“The music is as catchy as it is unique with songs reflecting influences from vintage commercials, 50’s rock style to a romping vaudeville style brass. And the lyrics are wonderfully campy acidic humor and it’s fuck’n perfect! ”
“BADASS! Nice fucking job!”
