Reviewed 2012-03-13
Droning, trippy, long-form psychedelic rock. A meeting of the minds for these psychedelic masters: heavy rockers Bardo Pond and experimental guitarist Tom Carter (of Charalambides, Badgerlore, and his own fame). Companion piece to the collaborative double LP, 4/23/03, and similarly also recorded on the date (April 25th, 2003), live in Philadelphia. It sounds exactly like you would imagine it, with a looser, noodly feel (because of the nature of live performance) than some of the recorded material by each artist, respectively.The first piece is the track of choice for the late-night, stoned-out listening audience. Unless you have a 30 minute radio show, I do not see why you wouldn’t play this. No restraint and no regrets.

1. Carter’s Skyline Grinder-esque opening, drums come in at ~8 minutes, simmers down 10 minutes later, then drums drop out along wandering guitar feedback. Isobel’s vocals come in and it’s really tense for a while. The track moves into odd, mid-paced hi-hat flute new weird folk reverberations. Heavier, post-y jam and release. (40:52)
2. Easy-mid, lethargic, delirious groove with alternating wah guitar and flute soloing. . (18:55)
