Ponytail and High Places Announce Tour Together
Download: High Places - "From Stardust To Sentience"
Download: Ponytail - "Celebrate The Body Electric (It Came From An Angel)"
Two of indie-rock's most promising up-and-comers have decided to gang up for a tour of the West Coast and Canada. Ponytail, whose live show is, literally, better than Christmas, have been touring behind their energetically virtuoso, noisily melodic record Ice Cream Spiritual; and High Places, an excellent, but wholly different, duo who consolidate world music, psychedelia, and indie-pop into short, trance-y waves of songs. The latter released a compilation of previously released material earlier this year, and are set to put out a new record in the coming month. Both bands are playing a handful dates, which neither take them to Minneapolis or Chicago. Sad. Oh well. Away they go now!
