A few realizations since we last heard a transmission from the Australian psych outfit Pond’s weirdo universe: frontman Nick Allbrook has left Tame Impala to focus on this project, and the band’s new record is indeed called Hobo Rocket. “Xanman” is the next offering the band have for us from that record, a six-minute psychedelic pop fist-pumper that sounds like it’ll produce a kaleidoscopic video cut from Woodstock footage (yes, it’s that nuts). Bonus points: the riff that kicks in toward the song’s latter third is positively, irresistibly triumphant. Check it out – you need only wait til August 6 for the rest of the record.
Pond (ex-Tame Impala) – “Xanman”
Phil Elverum’s music as Mount Eerie never made much sense to me until I moved…
He played every track on the record, including french horn.
The newest from Dan Boeckner’s latest post-Wolf Parade project.
Our first taste from Kintsugi, their first album since the departure of Chris Walla.
We’ve got video evidence of the recording of “Jeopardy.”
That song Kanye shared to some Important Radio People the other day? Yeah, it’s on…
