Shudder to Think was an American indie rock group. Formed in 1986, they released three albums on the Washington, D.C.-based label Dischord Records and were a post-hardcore band, although they drew upon a wide range of stylistic influences, including pop.
Pony Express Record is a 1994 album by the Washington, D.C.-based post-hardcore group Shudder to Think. It was their first album to be recorded for Epic Records. Although switching to a major label from the independent Dischord Records shocked and alienated some fans of the group, Pony Express Record proved to be a challenging release, mixing musical styles as diverse as jazz, art-rock, glam, post-punk, noise rock and folk. It is also regarded as one of the most underrated albums of the 90s, and has received considerable critical acclaim. Pitchfork Media placed the album as #29 on their original 1999 issue of Top 100 Albums of the 90s.
