‘Galax’s tracklist is filled with upright bass, acoustic guitar, twin fiddles, Telecaster, banjo, pedal steel, mandolin, harmonies, gang vocals and stripped- down percussion. Every song was recorded live, never once pausing the process to listen to the performance they’d just captured. It wasn’t until Wild Ponies returned home to Nashville that they finally heard the wild magic documented during those mountaintop sessions.
Bridging the gap between old and new, the album features revered Old-Time players Snake Smith, Kyle Dean Smith and Kilby Spencer from its namesake, Galax, Virginia and some of the band’s favourite musicians from Nashville: Fats Kaplin, Will Kimbrough, Neilson Hubbard and Audrey Spillman, to create a modern masterpiece with traditional folk influences.
