Motopony Live at KDHX 9/29/11 by KDHX

Peeling out from the stormy Pacific Northwest, Motopony is the musical union of former fashion designer Daniel Blue (vocals/guitar) and producer Buddy Ross (beats/keys), rounded out by drummer Forrest Mauvais and lead guitarist Brantley Cady. Not afraid to delve into modern tweaks like electronic vocal effects and slow it down for finger-picked guitar ballads Motopony has a knack for versatility.

With a spiritual rock vibe (not to mention a very psychedelic logo featuring four intertwined triangles), the band conveys a sense of vitality in their self-deemed "glitch-folk," a sound sure to energize a room in a live setting. It's hard to miss the well-placed mystic personality of the band with song titles like "Seer" or even "King of Diamonds." With only the self-titled LP from 2009 to showcase their brand of West coast '60s revivalist songs, Blue and his pack should have a prodigious career of creative development ahead of them.
