two great (relatively) straightforward rock songs then a twenty minute hawkwind meltdown makoto kawabata would give his left nut to have been part of

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

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.

Aw man the copy that I thought I was getting fell through. Well...at least it is on spotify.

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

this is great! I mean, I expected it to be, and it didn't disappoint. These guys are getting better imo...

Listening to the first

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.

oooh that sounds good

...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 (five 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 (five 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

sweat pea (La Lechera), Monday, 11 November 2013 17:46 (five years ago) Permalink

3. Kind of a recent development, I'd say circa Ticket Crystals where they covered "Cry, Baby, Cry." Not sure which are the actual songs on POV, though!
4. I like the second one (Under Glass) more, but HJT don't do it for me that much, tbh.

Matt Groening's Cousin (Leee), Monday, 11 November 2013 18:03 (five years ago) Permalink

All of their proper albums contain at least a couple "songs" among the jams.

Trip Maker, Monday, 11 November 2013 18:07 (five years ago) Permalink

Not sure which are the actual songs on POV, though!
wha? this one is pure songs! they're really really slow, but i can hear a structure that i don't always associate with this band. it's like they have a plan and it moves along at a slightly faster pace than it does on what i thought they sounded like. maybe it was just the first song was like that and it made me think the other songs were like that? OR maybe i am listening to something different than i did before? no idea! it definitely sounds songy to me.

i didn't like HJT much either, which is why i was wondering which one was the "good" one since i didn't really feel moved by the one i heard, forget which one tbh

are they touring? i can't even imagine what this would look like live. what do people do at a bardo pond show?

Trip Maker, Monday, 11 November 2013 18:17 (five years ago) Permalink

that sounds boring
are they boring live?

sweat pea (La Lechera), Monday, 11 November 2013 18:19 (five years ago) Permalink

They can be. They can be really exciting, too.
Haven't seen them in 7 or 8 years.

Trip Maker, Monday, 11 November 2013 18:20 (five years ago) Permalink

But their shows always seemed like a good opportunity to close my eyes and zone out to the noize rather than get amped and moved around.

Trip Maker, Monday, 11 November 2013 18:22 (five years ago) Permalink

They finished an OZ tour a few months back, I think, now they're mostly doing one-offs around Philly/the Northeast.

I have ~never~ seen them live.

Matt Groening's Cousin (Leee), Monday, 11 November 2013 18:29 (five years ago) Permalink

That seems like it would be pleasant if you knew what to expect.
Also, I finished the thing I had to do for work, ha. I think I like really slow boring music for stuff like that. I listen to Sleep a lot while grading exams.
