Ponytail

Ponytail is a 4-piece art rock band formed in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, on the label We Are Free. Their sound has been compared to Deerhoof as well as Ecstatic Sunshine, due to the band’s experimental guitar work and unique vocal stylings. The band has toured internationally, with bands such as Battles, Hella, Don Caballero, High Places and others. They have released two albums, Kamehameha, and Ice Cream Spiritual. They were named “Best Live Band” by Baltimore City Paper in September 2007 and “Best Band” in September 2008.[Wikipedia]

Nick Masi and I had to put together this feature for our Sirius-XMU show at the end of December (it ran in early January). They asked us to name “Best Live Band of 2008″ among other things. It’s hard to pick stuff like that, but we finally agreed on Ponytail for that award too. I realize that some people think exactly the opposite.

Ponytail brought it to The Bell House in Brooklyn on Friday night (1/23). Download an ACOUSTIC session they did for Daytrotter (if you haven’t already). See more pictures from the Brooklyn show and all tour dates, below…
