The Return of Bardo Pond & Los Campesinos! give the gift of music.
On January 11th Philadelphia's six headed psych monster, Bardo Pond return with their new self titled long player via the bands new label, London's Fire Records. The album will get a UK release a full month earlier On December 6th. I don't suppose it will do us any good to question release schedules. We're just thrilled that there's new Bardo Pond album headed our way. The new album is the bands follow up to 2006's Ticket Crystals and finds Bardo Pondo in peak form ,delivering 7 tracks of hallucination inducing goodness. The album teaser Don't Know About You find Bardo eschewing the drone that occupied their earlier recordings for harmonious landscapes of crunchy reverb.
Bardo Pond will play All Tomorrow's parties Nightmare Before Christmas curated by Godspeed You! Black Emperor Butlins, UK on December 4th.
Bardo Pond - Don't Know About You
This morning while checking e-mails, and social media updates as we tend to do over our bowl of oatmeal, we were thrilled to find that Gareth Los Campesinos had posted Too Many Flesh Suppers to the Los Campesinos blog as well as Facebook and Twitter for free download. Too Many Flesh Supper is a song LC! recorded during the Romance is Boring sessions, but decided it didn't quite fit in with the rest of the LP. Although the song was issued as a b-side on the Romance is Boring 7", the song had largely gone unheard by many Los Campesinos fans. Until today that is. In addition to that track the bands site features a poster that reads, Heat Rash...coming soon. We're hoping this could suggest a new recording of some kind. But until something official is announced as to what the hell Heat Rash is, we won't pretend to have a clue.
