Boomkat Product Review:
New signings to ATP recordings, Bardo Pond have often been quoted as being Mogwai's favourite band. Hailing from Philadelphia and sometimes overlooked, Bardo Pond are releasing 'On The Ellipse,' their 6th album which does indeed bring to mind vintage Mogwai with the brilliant quiet/loud interplay that is so beguiling with its slinky, rough appeal. The band have performed at the very first ATP festival as well as being hand picked by Sonic Youth for their ATP last March in Los Angeles. With a heavier and fresher sound and a new label the band are preparing to tour the US with this record in early summer and will return to the UK/Europe in October as confirmed support on Mogwai's album tour. Brilliant stuff.
