    Ponytail - Celebrate The Body Electric (It Came From an Angel)

    These days, it doesn't happen very often that a musical act can catch me completely off guard, put a lasting smile on my stern face and have me crow, now THAT's the stuff!

    One of these happy occasions was caused earlier this year by Baltimore-based artsy rockers Ponytail. Celebrate The Body Electric (It Came From an Angel), taken from the sympathetic 4-piece's 2008 record Ice Cream Spiritual, is a carazy 7-minute roller coaster ride that pleasantly clears your palette and leaves nothing but happy feelings behind.

    Update: I'm saddened to find out that the band ceased to exist just last month. I couldn't wait to finally see them perform live. There, stern face again.

      Post-Ponytail is a sad time indeed. I had the pleasure of seeing them twice during their short tenure and it was something to behold. I recommend you find Dustin Wong's solo work titled 'Infinite Love' and give it a listen. Also, the acoustic version of Beg Waves is great and something you can show even the most stubborn non-music fans to convert them!

      Thanks, rza (Wu Tang?)! I had heard about Dustin Wong's solo work but hadn't gotten around yet to give it some listen. His musicality is highly impressive.

      I beg your pardon, it is '7 souls' that is acoustic - and available on their myspace.
