Ponytail - Ice Cream Social

I can't stop listening to Ponytail. The collection of songs on Ice Cream Social, their second release is absolutely mental, showcasing amazing amounts of raw energy which really comes across in the recording. Ice Cream Social sounds like a band having fun, doing what they love and enjoying it, The best way to describe them would be a much louder and more energetic Los Campesinos.
Coming from that sort of Lo Fi scene that seems to be drawing so much attention at the moment, but these aren't short, sharp bursts of music, for instance one of my highlights is the 6.55 minute 'Celebrate the Body Electric (It Came From an Angel)'
The Baltimore four piece are still yet to break England but with their second helping sounding this good, it won't be long.
