Album Review

Label: Modular Recordings
Psychedelic rock from Perth, Australia. Pond, a five-piece “side project” (read: five albums) of some of Tame Impala’s members. Sounds a lot like Led Zeppelin in some tracks, others are just plain odd. The song titles are pretty funny too. Overall, a goofy not so serious album that still packs a punch (and a fat bowl).
Picks: 1, 2, *4*, 5
FCC’s: 1, 2, 3

*1. (4:42) FCC Rock and roll drum and guitar alongside blissful noise. Zeppelin like track. Epic.
*2. (5:50) FCC Upbeat with driving guitar, spacey effects, and lo-fi garage sound. Shredding to the max.
3. (4:56) FCC: mother fuckers Calm but aggressive vocals with stoned electric guitars and acoustic guitar. Gets dreamy and spacey mmmm...  6 3 bong rips into the afternoon on a sunny day
**4. (4:32) Banging drums with electric guitar carries this slow, stomping funeral march into a classic Zeppelin style. Oh, and the vocalist goes crazy :-) AW YEAH.
*5. (4:12) Nice little electric guitar riffs lined with tambourines and spacey effects.
6. (3:35) Weird male vocals, discordant guitars and squeaking. A lyric is “what kinds of drugs you guys on?”, so you know its solid.
7. (6:13) Anger here in this one-- guitars on a spiritual journey while drums vary the tempo of the track. Gets nice and ambient in the outro.
