Sounds like: happy.

I don't usually post things like this because as soon as music like this comes out of my speakers I'm reminded that I don't have cool enough clothes to ever be taken seriously at a show where music like this is played, but screw it.

Here's the first single from Ponytail's forthcoming release Ice Cream Spiritual!:
Ponytail - Celebrate The Body Electric (It Came From An Angel) (mp3)
I'm really at a loss to describe this, or what I like about it. Essentially, it's 7 minutes of...rapture. The guitars are loud and have the attention span of an overly sugared toddler. Once in a while they'll settle into a groove for a few bars, but they seem to get bored of it before I do every time. The vocals don't amount to much more than rock and roll googoogaga babytalk. It feels like it should be the soundtrack to one of those internet videos of grown adults that get together and have naptime on the floor and play with Tonka trucks. It's just about exactly what you'd expect from a band that calls their record Ice Cream Spiritual!

And if you're like me and you're reading this without having heard it, you're wondering why I would ever expect you to listen to this.

I don't know, maybe it's just that it's really beautiful in the city today after a number of spring's false starts, but I'm really into this song right now. Give it a shot. You might like it as much as I do.

Ponytail's Ice Cream Spiritual! comes out June 17.
