The debut album from this Asheville, NC resident is full of humid, hypnotic, acoustic guitar-driven Southern-style psychedelia. It owes nearly everything to the early Elephant 6 bands and Bradford Cox's Atlas Sound, but manages to push the genre a step forward.  More

Pond

Hobo Rocket

Modular

Aug 08, 2013 Music Web Exclusive

Pond's Hobo Rocket is an exercise in organized chaos. When the band organizes its classic rock tendencies, hammering down power chords and feeding a hunger for severe fuzzy guitar freakouts, it makes for a perfect storm.

The final day of a three-day music festival is usually a bitter-sweet affair. While there's a part of you doesn't want the incredible performances and time-out-of-time experience to end and real life to take over again, another part of you is utterly relieved not to have to trek for miles across muddy fields, eat overpriced festival food and stand in long lines for porta potties.
