BARDO POND (Matador/ATP/Fire)
One of the most respected and influential psych/post-rock/shoegaze bands in the World since 1991. The U.S equivalent of Mogwai, cited by the Scots as their biggest influence and having completed tours together for the last 10+ years. They have consistently been selected to headline festival alongside their peers Sonic Youth, Godspeed etc and are over for three dates in Europe while headlining Supersonic festival.
American psychedelic rock band formed in 1991, and who are currently signed to London based label Fire Records. The current members are Michael Gibbons (guitar), John Gibbons (guitar), Isobel Sollenberger (flute and vocals), Clint Takeda (bass guitar), Jason Kourkonis (drums), and Aaron Igler (synth/electronics). Bardo Pond's drug-inspired music is often classified as space rock, acid rock, post-rock, shoegazing, noise or psychedelic rock. Many Bardo Pond album titles have been derived from the names of esoteric psychedelic substances. Their sound has been likened to Pink Floyd, Spacemen 3 and My Bloody Valentine amongst others.
Allmusic describes Bardo Pond as having "lengthy, deliberate sound explorations filled with all the hallmarks of modern-day space rock: droning guitars, thick distortion, feedback, reverb, and washes of white noise." Bardo Pond are a taper-friendly band who encourage fans to make recordings of their shows.
A relatively new five piece psychedelic rock group in the vein of Spacemen 3. Dense Wooden Shjips-esque grooves play repetitious host to echo drenched spiritual wailing and astral synth drone. Featuring members of Twisted and Spectrals.
THE PISS SUPERSTITION
The monicker under which former Vibracathedral Orchestra member Julian Bradley conducts his guitar drone explorations. Expect murky compositions with unexpectedly melodic seams and disintegrated doom-riffs running through the layers of effects fuzz and feedback. New LP out on Memoirs of an Aesthete.
TRUMPETS OF DEATH
Broody avant rock...
"Trumpets of Death have delivered a record which is uncompromising in its vision and, most wonderfully, complete in its execution. It is a record which richly rewards repeat listens. Teeth + Teeth = Teeths is something music in 2011 desperately needs: a shot of the dark stuff, delivered by people who know exactly what they're doing" Soundblab.com
