Double metallic silver colored vinyl LP pressing. In Pond's universe nothing stays still for long. Although no one who heard 2019's Tasmania could possibly describe it's pulsating psych-pop as straight, Pond wanted to try a more spontaneous way of working for their next record. Taking a leaf out of krautrock outliers Can's book, at the start of 2020, Pond embarked on a series of totally off-the-cuff jam sessions from which songs and ideas could be pulled out. Given the pace at which ideas whizz past your head, it makes for a dizzying listen. Opener Song For Agnes explodes out the speakers like an intergalactic rock opera, running a synapse-tingling gauntlet through bubbling synth pop, 80s hair metal and blissed out saxophone before you know what's hit you. It's an apposite curtain-raiser for an album that can encompass pounding techno (Human Touch), elastic hipped robofunk (America's Cup), tripped out motorik (Czech Locomotive) and acres more besides without even topping for breath.
