Levitation Edition Exclusive Pressing (lim. 100)
Black and White splatter vinyl
10th anniversary clear, black and white splatter vinyl reissue of ;Peace
on Venus; by Bardo Pond, Philadelphia's foremost purveyors of
psychedelic rock. Includes ‘Kali Yuga Blues’, a true behemoth of a
song and a shining example of the band’s ecstatic intensity.
Delving deep in to their subconscious to bring it to the conscious, the
band’s 2013 effort dazzles, with their gift for heavy riffs laced with
soaring vocals and swathes of sound. Bardo Pond has the outward
specifications of a rock band but the rivers that converge into the
band's oneiric flow have their headwaters in the outlands of ecstatic
jazz, free noise and the avant-garde.
The recording process of ‘Peace On Venus’ used the principle of the
Quintessence, which is a principle cited by the 16th Century
physician Paracelsus, who noted: Nothing of true value is located in
the body of a substance, but in the virtue thereof, and this is the
principle of the Quintessence, which reduces, say 20 lbs. of a given
substance into a single Ounce, and that ounce far exceeds the 20
lbs. in potency. Hence the less there is of body, the more in proportion is the virtue thereof
Due to the nature of making a vinyl record, each record is one of a kind. The vinyl you receive may look different from our photo. Colored vinyl is more prone to surface noise and imperfections.
