Not to miss the joke here, but I've been thinking a lot lately about Ponytail, and how I would categorize them. These days hyper-taxonomizers tend to categorize bands by geographic origin/"scene" such as it were, which aside from being more than a little misleading (show of hands how many "Brooklyn" bands aren't made up of post-collegiate immigrés? anybody?) doesn't really give any good information about how bands sound (unless they're just copying each other).

Frankly I think Ponytail share a lot of similarities with the matsuri-kei tradition, but like Afrirampo are a bit too guitar-oriented (plus the vocals, when intelligible, are in English, I think). Also only the vocalist is female. It's sort of matsuri-kei by way of Marnie Stern. Does Taxonomer-Hypocrite-Momus have a pithy/catchy name for this related but distinct genre?
