Bardo Pond Silver

Release date: February 15, 2019
Label: Fire Records
'One of underground rock's most extraordinary enigmas.' The Quietus. First time on Double Silver Vinyl. Critical praise from Pitchfork, Clash, The Wire, Q Magazine and more upon release. New inverted LTD edition artwork. Fire re-issue Bardo Pond's eponymous eighth studio album from 2010, their debut for Fire from way back when. A lysergic brain wrestler in which the Pennsylvanian drone outfit perfect their modal sound. Teasing the artistry of LaMonte Young and Terry Riley into a guitar shaped cauldron, the album's compulsive reverbed guitar shapes slowly simmer behind Isobel Sollenberger's esoteric vocals 'Like hearing a tannoy at a station in the voice of Jesus.' The Quietus. A claustrophobic stuttering raga interlocks with their psychedelic leanings best exemplified on 'Cracker Wrist' which sounds like something that's intentionally always just about to happen/and/or spin back in time. Featuring lengthy fully nurtured play offs between the quintet 'Bardo Pond' is a heady statement that's like the most wholesome kind of vegan-friendly mushroom trips. Pitchfork reckons they're 'playing fuzzed out stoner dreams.' Vice's musical brother Noisey likens them to 'Fugazi On Acid.' Allmusic intervenes with: 'These are epic, soaring psychedelic ambient power-drone rock noise melodies where partially buried, distant female vocals are laced throughout a roaring, murky/sludge guitar soundscape.'
