Bardo Pond album review

Bardo Pond
4/5

Philadelphia freaks beloved by Mogwai who have presumably gone down the self-titled LP route to wipe clean the slate of trippy expectation. Given previous choices, such as Bufo Alvarius, Amen 29: 15 and Amanita, it’s understandable. Not that the sextet have ditched their interest in mood-modification. Their hazy and whacked-out FX-heavy ragas are like adverts for altered states, roaming across psychedelia, drone and wyrd folk and stretching out (on ‘Undone’) to 21 minutes, with Isobel Sollenberger’s soft, cosmic moan the unifying thread.
