March 22, 2007 There's something familiar about The Ponys' "Poser Psychotic." The two guitars create a dense blare, the rhythm section throbs with low-end gristle, and singer Jered Gummere intones in a slacker drone. There's no chorus, but it's compelling nonetheless, and in ways that feel eerily recognizable.
March 15, 2007 When recruiting band members, Jered Gummere turned first to his girlfriend with whom he shares a love of the Misfits, Pavement and Richard Hell. It turns out that those shared loves aren't too far from the band's sound: arty post-punk with hooks that recall the Cure in its heyday. Produced by KEXP.
