Dustin Clarence Hidetoshi Wong is a Chinese/American guitarist formerly active in the art-rock band Ponytail. He is half Chinese, half American, born in Hawaii, grew up in Japan and currently (2013) lives in New York City. Compared to the spastic art-rock of his main gig, Ponytail, guitarist Dustin Wong’s solo work is considerably more meditative. Given the limited tools he works with, he conjures up a surprising amount of good material, and fans of the upbeat experimentation of Ponytail, Battles and Delicate Steve should find plenty to enjoy here. Label: Thrill Jockey.
