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. :(

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

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.

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?

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...

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.

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

damn, that was a hell of a thing. and yeah, "molten" is the word, at least in the second half. can't touch the liquid precision and dialed-in emotional intensity of the original, but provides a spectacular platform for bp's sense-dulled flame & glide.

"the creator has a master plan" is proceeding v nicely, too. shades of spacemen 3's take on "transparent radiation". these are no shit two of my very favorite songs in all the world, and i can't imagine them channeled through a finer medium.

Playing their side from Harmony of the Spheres in anticipation. I think I like them them most when they extend further.

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

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 (two years ago) Permalink

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

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