Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Rivertree
3 stars Bardo Pond members are collaborating with experimental guitarist Roy Montgomery from Christchurch/New Zealand here. The band name is derived from German krautrockers Ash Ra Tempel with Manuel Göttsching aboard, still a genre inspiring top musician. And no wonder, at least three electric guitars are interacting on this 6 improv songs which represent a blend of relaxed post and space rock coupled with a strong drone factor. This is dedicated to special moments - definitely not for the depressive ones. Hence somebody needs to be in a tempered mood ...and then this album may develop to something challenging.

It has been more than a temporary flirt, 'Under Glass' is their second effort from 1999 anyhow. The songs are made of a simplistic repetitive nature and live from the multiple guitar variations. The meandering Präludium und Fuge - D-Moll picks the listener up for an hypnotic excursion to a no-man's land ... or maybe even to foreign galaxies. An echo respectively feedback festival basically, however not plain fuss, the drones are put with sentiment and suspense. The following Labiomancy then points to the weird, less accessible album sections - sounds noisy, like they were on cold turkey at that time.

The relaxed Hymenoptera In Amber Crybab shows a collection of wonderful melancholic moments, crying and imploring guitars, 100% pure space rock according to my taste, the drone factor takes a backseat. So much emotion implemented - I love this one. Guitar walls all over, they are tenacious for sure. Isobel Sollenberg is credited too, but I could detect her only for a short episode. Could not make friends with every track - genre fans who are keen on weird experimental stuff though will put a higher rating probably - 3.5 stars really for this interesting effort.
