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?

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...

Busy weekend.

I would've voted Ticket Crystals, but I'm hardly a completist.

Who's the lead vox on the second track of the new one?

I don't know why it's taking me so long to get into these monster freakout jams now, but I'm finally digging on "A Crossing" now.

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.

Isobel's flute on "Maggot Brain" makes it sound like an On the Ellipse outtake so far, though the production is a little grungier.

... track now, and I think this "midtempo dirge with loads of crushing bass distortion" direction has legs for the band.

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

"Crossover" appeared in set-lists in early 2016. Any earlier?
