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

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

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.

Matt Groening's Cousin (Leee), Sunday, 13 October 2013 22:03 (five years ago) Permalink

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

...not really, but I've been jamming this & the new Bill Callahan and Cave records the past 2 weeks....flute all over.

dronestreet, Wednesday, 30 October 2013 19:24 (four years ago) Permalink

Oh wow when there's this quick break and Isobel sings "It's gonna be all right," wow.

Matt Groening's Cousin (Leee), Sunday, 10 November 2013 22:41 (four years ago) Permalink

1) this seems to be the only album i can use to convince myself to do boring work for work -- if i do the task, i get to listen to new bardo pond.
2) from the first two lines of singing in kali yuga blues, all i can think about is moon pix era cat power but super plugged in. does isobel always sing like this? who sang like that first? this is not a joke question.
3) has this band always sounded like this? like, with actual songs? i really don't know that much about them outside of maybe 2-3 albums? both were more instrumental iirc.
4) which of the hash jar tempo albums (that's the one with roy montgomery, right?) is better? i listened to one of them once and it was ok, but kinda...too loose/improv/bloodless and i didn't listen to it again
