Pond have announced a live studio album ahead of their UK shows this November.

Recorded during the Fremantle psych-pop band's spring European tour, 'Sessions' will be released on November 8 on streaming platforms. The band's Jay Watson said:

"We wanted to capture how the band has been playing live lately and commit that to tape while we were in the middle of a long tour. As you play the same song for years, or even as a single tour rolls on, the way you play the songs mutates.

"Little inflections and fills become part of the song, and the structures and even the overall feeling and intent of the songs change. I always loved listening to my favourite bands 'Peel Sessions' and wanted something of our own in that vein. We hope you dig it!"

Alongside the news comes album cut Don’t Look At The Sun (Or You’ll Go Blind). The track originally appeared on the band's 2009 debut album, 'Psychedelic Mango'.

Pond's upcoming UK tour is in support of their eighth studio album, 'Tasmania', the follow up to 2017’s 'The Weather', out now via Marathon Artists. The band also return to Australia this January to perform with Mac DeMarco

1. Daisy

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.

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.
