Pond's fourth album Beard, Wives, Denim is an audio diary of ten friends' strange, terrible and blissful time in the country trying in vain to be a wholesome family band. It sounds just like it, distorted and woozy and fractured and ultimately nostalgic and loving.
This week's Modcast is a selection of the inspirations and audio fancies behind their music. Sit back and go on a blissed out journey as the boys take you through some fresh Australian jams to some classic British 60s girl-groups and all points in-between. Track-list below.
Mixed by Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) and Rob Grant at Poon's Head Studio in Perth, Beard, Wives, Denim will be out on Modular Recordings March 2nd (AUS), March 5th (UK/EU), and March 6th (US). Pre-order now, via Mod Shop, iTunes, JB Hi Fi.
