RSD LP Release out 4/20 on Fire


Bardo Pond – “Rise Above It All” EP Released: 21 Mar 2013

This is an exclusive Record Store Day 2013 release and will be available to purchase from us after 20th April 2013 (If stocks allow).

Bardo Pond return with a special release for Record Store Day in the form of a limited edition 12″ featuring their explosive interpretations of Funkadelic’s “Maggot Brain” and Pharoah Sanders’ “The Creator Has a Master Plan”. With “Maggot Brain” running to over 21 minutes and “Creator…” at fifteen minutes, these are epic performance pieces, taking the listener through a range of emotions as the band explore their innermost creativity.

As Michael Gibbons from Bardo Pond explains:

“These tracks represent the apex of sublimity for us. They are archetypes for our way of making music. They both offer the listener a mainline to an emotional epiphany that can only be experienced through listening to these very songs. Through seemingly minimal means, gut wrenching tones and glorious repetition, a gateway opens, endorphins are released, illumination is attained. We stand in the light emanating from these Pyramids of Sound. We humbly rolled them up in the Lemur House as a form of pilgrimage. Please partake. Thanks.
