WA legends Pond have already had a massive 2019 with the release of their latest album Tasmania, but now they’re keeping fans happy having announced a new live album today called Sessions.
Sessions was recorded over a string of performances in Europe earlier this year, and we’ll feature tracks that span across the band’s lengthy and storied discography.
In a statement, founding member Jay Watson detailed why the band wanted to make this album in the first place.
“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,” he said.
“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!”
Sessions is out on Friday, 8th November. Hear the album’s version of Psychedelic Mango cut ‘Don’t Look At The Sun (Or You’ll Go Blind)’.
