Pond - The Weather album mp3
The Weather is the seventh studio album by Australian psychedelic rock band Pond. It was released on 5 May 2017 by Marathon Artists. Pond frontman Nicholas Allbrook has described the album as a "concept album, not completely about Perth, but focusing on all the weird contradictory things that make up a lot of colonial cities around the world. Laying out all the dark things underneath the shimmering exterior of cranes, development, money and white privilege.
He sold out both his eyes Yet sees her face Her thighs in lace Oh, why such waste? Ghosts are only negative space Ancestors, no blood No place, no mark Just voices, in the dark. The floor, is covered in champagne The leather and the blood, and all the sudden rain And man, you should’ve seen those cops' batons The worst case scenario, survival game. Let’s talk about how you wrote ‘The Weather’. Joe Ryan: We had Nick write most of the lyrics for the songs, bar two maybe, so that we had more of a theme to it.

The Weather - POND Via SoundCloud. Because of the success that one-time Pond drummer Kevin Parker has had with his solo vehicle Tame Impala, it’s easy to mistake Pond for a spinoff act-especially since Pond’s music wasn’t released outside of Australia until their fourth album, Beard, Wives, Denim, in 2012. Parker has functioned as in-house mixing engineer since Pond’s 2009 debut Psychedelic Mango, while two of Pond’s three core members-Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson-have in turn served as touring members of Tame Impala. Ditto for All I Want for Xmas (Is a Tascam 388), which apes the iconic chorus of Bob Geldof and Midge Ure’s 1984 all-star famine-relief song Do They Know It’s Christmas. Such campy detours are hardly surprising given that Pond’s work has mostly been about as serious as a spitball fight between junior high students just released from detention.
Few discussions about Perth outfit Pond are likely to pass without at least a nod to Kevin Parker’s Tame Impala.
A reference to a once mundane subject that's come to be loaded with the realities of climate change, The Weather is the seventh studio LP from Australian psych-pop outfit Pond. The album was produced by Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, bandmate and former bandmate of Pond founders Jay Watson and Nick Allbrook, respectively. The title also refers to the sociopolitical climate leading up to its release in the spring of 2017. In fact, the band's otherwise often inscrutable lyrics openly address these topics, alongside an also somewhat transformed sound
