Forever cited as the space rock band that deliver everyone’s fix of drug-inspired psychedelia, Bardo Pond land on earth to fill a gap in our Latitudes series. It’s safe to say this quintet come out in full force to deliver lengthy, calculated soundscapes luxurious in distortion and noise. It all began by two brothers, Michael & John Gibbons, sharing their interest in free-form noise, spreading the enthusiasm to an array of instrumentalists and vocalists. Their sound snowballed taking in musical roots from the realm of jazz and blues structures, not to mention New York's No Wave movement and the downtown Knitting Factory scenes. Now after eight acclaimed full-length albums, the band that often dabbles in an eclectic range of side projects have regrouped for another stormer.
“Bardo Pond are a band who don't so much let their music wash over you in all its beauty as tangle you up in it to the point where you become completely eclipsed by them. When I first saw them live I was pretty unprepared for the enormity of what I was about to experience. The ensuing combination of their psychedelic guitar trail-blazing with Isobel's flute solo suspended above it was nigh on perfection that left my mind in a state of near meltdown. Suffice to say, I was smitten." - Lizzy Huthwaite, July 2012
"...for Bardo Pond, throwing everything at the wall makes for a kind of coherence; from their small-run experimental discs to their semi-formal proper LPs, their slowpoke psychonaut scuzz has floated into all sorts of strange places, with a low to match every high.” - Pitchfork
