"One of underground rock's most extraordinary enigmas." The Quietus. First time on Double Silver Vinyl.

Critical praise from Pitchfork, Clash, The Wire, Q Magazine and more upon release. New inverted LTD edition artwork.

Fire re-issue Bardo Pond's eponymous eighth studio album from 2010, their debut for Fire from way back when.

A lysergic brain wrestler in which the Pennsylvanian drone outfit perfect their modal sound.

Teasing the artistry of LaMonte Young and Terry Riley into a guitar shaped cauldron, the album's compulsive reverbed guitar shapes slowly simmer behind Isobel Sollenberger's esoteric vocals "Like hearing a tannoy at a station in the voice of Jesus." The Quietus.

A claustrophobic stuttering raga interlocks with their psychedelic leanings best exemplified on 'Cracker Wrist' which sounds like something that's intentionally always just about to happen/and/or spin back in time.

Featuring lengthy fully nurtured play offs between the quintet 'Bardo Pond' is a heady statement that's like the most wholesome kind of vegan-friendly mushroom trips.

Pitchfork reckons they're "playing fuzzed out stoner dreams." Vice's musical brother Noisey likens them to "Fugazi On Acid." Allmusic intervenes with: "These are epic, soaring psychedelic ambient power-drone rock noise melodies where partially buried, distant female vocals are laced throughout a roaring, murky/sludge guitar soundscape."
