Pond biography
Multi-instrumentalists Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson are hailing from Perth, Australia and began to make music together when playing in the psychedelic-pop band Tame Impala. Alongside with Joseph Ryan they also formed POND in 2008, initiated as a collaborative musical project, where concepts or restrictions should mean a minor role at first. Their first recordings are showcasing a vintage rock sound, turning away from common song structures.

The debut album titled 'Psychedelic Mango' was released in January 2009. Not much later 'Corridors Of Blissterday' came out in June 2009 and matters a progressive psych/space production featuring experimental jam attitude. It was completed live with an eight piece band in five days. Kevin Parker joined on drums in late 2009 and the band tendentially turned towards contemporary psych-pop furthermore with the following songs. Two albums are still in the making, where 'Hobo Rocket' should be awaited in the course of the year.

Corridors Of Blissterday
Pond Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Eetu Pellonpää
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
4 stars This is certainly a wonderful album for orientating oneself to another hippie spring revelation. The music of the record evocates itself to the airwaves as a formless cosmic entity, reminding the 1970's Hawkwind brutal rock beatings with atonal sonic decorations. Melodic forms start taking shape via twists slightly similar from Pink Floyd's debut album, but with more aggressive intensity and modern sound orientation towards post-psychedelic oppressive impressions. Songs of this album carry forward an interesting feeling of schizophrenia, as they seem to synthesize both soothing and disturbing elements to a convincing solid aural appearance. Composed melodic patterns oscillate through blurring surfaces of deep space psychedelia, and the guitar sounds habiting quite heavy planes of distortion and attack. Though the two bands I here referred have thousands of clone groups, I think on basis of this recording the musicians of Pond have managed to create a personal sound, locating neatly to the tastes of 1960's garage / hippie rock album spinners, 1970's space rockers and also 21st century schizoid men's stoner rock appreciations. Most possibly a petal of wide enthusiasm of musical styles and well working collaboration with all players involved. Will certainly do further record procurements of this band's albums, which I understood would have curves to different leanings on both improvised disappearances in the ozone and more thoughtfully produced psych-pop straits.

Pond Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

3 stars When prolific psychedelic pop musicians are going crazy (a bit) ... eh ... what should be expected then afterwards? POND is related to the Australian band Tame Impala, due to the fact that multi-instrumentalists Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson as well as occasionally drummer Kevin Parker were, respectively are, active for both bands. Now Allbrock seems to have quit his collaboration with Tame Impala completely though in the meanwhile. Anyhow, with good reason you still can say that POND is the experimental incarnation of both, also equipped with a progressive rock signature more distinctly.

Where I find the 2010 'Corridors Of Blissterday' recordings way more space rock and jam oriented, all their albums have a common ground more or less, the affinity to the early Syd Barrett coloured Pink Floyd, which is occasionally shimmering through. With a running time of 34 minutes approximately 'Hobo Rocket' does not belong to the opulent exemplars of course, not a surprise really on the other hand, when you have a look at the other albums.

This is strictly song oriented, I mean there's any kind of jam approach missing on this occasion, however music offered with proper finesse. The album's kick off forces headbanging while showing a heavy energetic expression with Whatever Happened To The Million Head Collide and Xanman. But soon they provide other features with the lovely floating O Dharma - a slight oriental touch, and the vocals are simply fantastic, this mirrors a typical late 60's vibe.

Underlayed by dramatic organ and heavy guitar riffs Aloneaflameaflower gets close to some Black Sabbath doom sentiment where the album title track on the other hand, though surely experimental, is not able to light my fire (yet). Featuring intriguing multi-layered guitar work the closing krautrock iinfluenced Midnight Mass may be considered as another highlight. Tending towards a more heavy psychedelic mode of expression this time, POND have delivered another respectable output in 2013 - 3.5 stars.
