Meet The Band

May 15, 2008|By Sam Sessa

Hometown -- Baltimore

Current members --Dustin Wong, guitar; Jeremy Hyman, drums; Ken Seeno, guitar; Molly Siegel, vocals

Founded in --2005

Style --experimental rock

Influenced by --Michael Rother, the Ventures, Metallica

Notable --The band's new album, Ice Cream Spiritual, will be released next month. Recording and mixing it only took a couple of weeks. But the band sometimes spent as long as three months writing a single track, Wong said. The reason? Everybody in the group has input on the music.

Quotable --"We try to keep it as democratic as possible," Wong said. "There isn't anybody in the group who brings in whole songs to play. We start from scratch most of the time. One person would have one idea and we'd work from that and it would change completely."

Ponytail opens for Black Kids and Cut Copy on Saturday at Sonar, 407 E. Saratoga St. Doors open at 8 p.m. $10. Call 410-783-7888 or go to sonarbaltimore.com. The band: myspace.com/jreamteam.
