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.'
