Pond have announced a new LP.

'Tasmania', the follow up to 2017’s 'The Weather', is due for release on March 1 through Marathon Artists and was again co-produced by the pysch-pop band and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala.

Pond celebrated the announcement by sharing the album's opener, Daisy. It's a six minute psychedelic epic, starting with a melancholic string section before heading into alt-pop disco territory.

The track's accompanying video was directed by previous collaborator Jesse Taylor Smith and filmed in Victoria, Australia. It encourages listeners to embrace the world we live in —  dance on the beach, play in the sea, roll in the grass and fall in love —  while we still can.

‘Tasmania’ tracklist:

1. Daisy
2. Sixteen Days
3. Tasmania
4. The Boys Are Killing Me
5. Hand Mouth Dancer
6. Goodnight, P.C.C.
7. Burnt Out Star
8. Selené
9. Shame
10. Doctor’s In

What's Your First Line Going To Be? The Futureheads Discuss Their Long-Awaited Return With 'Powers'
Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.

Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
