Set & Setting or On The Ellipse for me...

I'd vote for the "LSD POND" thing they did with LSD March if I could.

ryan, Sunday, 20 February 2011 00:20 (seven years ago) Permalink

not going to vote because I haven't heard many of these, but Ticket Crystals was what stuck with me. the only one I still play with any regularity. haven't been able to get into the s/t either.

rockapads, Sunday, 20 February 2011 02:32 (seven years ago) Permalink

Leaving aside the early cassettes, I've heard ALL but 2-4 of these. (Also own LSD Pond, and a fistful of side/affiliated projects.)

oh man just saw this poll

gotta go dilate as hearing "two planes" as my first bardo pond tune just totally did my head in, instant fan for life. agree the hash jar tempo and lsd pond releases are worthy & missing. likewise w/ the tom carter collaborative live thing. used to have the prairie dog flesh, vapour theories, 500mg stuff too but then sold it. i think i had like 25+ bardo things on my shelf. went a bit overboard there for a while!

Makes sense to go overboard with Bardo, hah. You got me beat, too: I only have 19 Bardo-related things on my shelf.

There's no Cypher Documents either, and that's straight up real Bardo. :(

voting Lapsed and only own four albums, all from the mid 90's. need to listen to the new one.

Of course they're all great, but a curveball vote for me this poll - 'Ticket Crystals'

BlackIronPrison, Sunday, 20 February 2011 20:11 (seven years ago) Permalink

Wtf is up w people in this thread? New one is great. Fantastic, even. Making me regret once again not voting in the past end-of-year poll.

set and setting is the one i heard first and probably still my fav

sonderangerbot, Monday, 21 February 2011 00:59 (seven years ago) Permalink

4 votes for the new one is kind of a shocker! who else voted for it???

if music be the fuiud of love then piss off (Drugs A. Money), Tuesday, 22 February 2011 23:48 (seven years ago) Permalink

i did. i don't know their catalogue real well—a couple-few of the late-90s ones that i heard then (ok) or revisited in recent years (to better effect), recent ones like 'peri' that i enjoyed a lot, and the new one. they've always struck me as pretty awesome when they're awesome and not-quite-heavy-or-messed-up-enough when not, a little inconsistent at what i was getting from them, but lately they've been more satisfying to me and the new one seemed to really hit a zone even on the kinds of songs i would have been impatient with in the past.

i think it's partly a drums and bass thing—have they sorted out their rhythm section a little better now?

j., Wednesday, 23 February 2011 02:46 (seven years ago) Permalink

sounds like i rly need to hear the new one!

P4k gave it a 6.5, which really got on my nerves...I dunno enough about them either but I think you're right j, the new one hits a sweet spot and stays there...

that show is so goddamn early i'm gonna miss mtns & pond because of work. love metal mountains; one of my fave bands at the moment.

I guess you're also gonna miss Guided By Voices, White Fence, Thee Oh Sees, Eleanor Friedberger and Spectre Folk who are all playing different shows that night.

Busy weekend.

i would rather see bardo pond than all those, although god bless robert pollard

Man, Ticket Crystals sounding so good this morning. "destroying Angel" is my favorite Bardo Pond song right now. Isobel's voice reminds me of a (relatively) more tuneful Toody Cole, and when the flute comes in and you think it's just another vocal track at first, it's seriously a Fripp-guitar-solo-on-"Hammond Song" kinda moment

If Assholes Could Fly This Place Would Be An Airport, Wednesday, 2 January 2013 12:08 (five years ago) Permalink

Yeah imo Ticket Crystals is the start of a major upswing for the Bardos

i think my actual favorite bardo pond-related thing is THIRD TROLL; Pharmacognosy is one of the shroomiest things ever recorded

bardo pond are playing at a very small venue this weekend two nights in a row -- i am going to miss the first night because richard pinhas is also playing a very small venue but should i make an effort to catch bardo pond?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 4 October 2016 19:34 (one year ago) Permalink

I've never seen them live. But based on their records - yes!

Duke, Tuesday, 4 October 2016 19:40 (one year ago) Permalink

well yeah i mean i obviously like their records i just wondered what their live show is like

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 4 October 2016 19:43 (one year ago) Permalink

liiiiike are they gonna play pharaoh sanders covers or are they going to play one note for 45 min or all of the above or ?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 4 October 2016 19:48 (one year ago) Permalink

AFAIK they play stuff from their albums, the weirder skronky stuff is saved for like Third Troll or other side project names.

Godspeed You! Black Widow (Leee), Tuesday, 4 October 2016 19:50 (one year ago) Permalink

seriously thinking about driving up to Chicago for the sunday show...that place is really tiny, though? i mean...could be cool, but could be terrible. a recent live set on nyctaper had a mix of recent, new, and old stuff, all of which sounded greeeeeat.

dronestreet, Tuesday, 4 October 2016 20:26 (one year ago) Permalink

it's definitely small, yeah
also the sat nite show is being billed as Alumbrados?

Alumbrados is going to be skronkier!

I've only seen Bardo Pond once, sadly, but it was a great show. Big oceanic waves of titan hippie groove

Listening to the new on Spotify -- I swear I've seen "Crossover" on an old compilation or EP.
