Bardo Pond

Formed in 1991, Philadelphia’s Bardo Pond have spent some thirty years mapping guitar music’s outer limits – dialing into extremes of noise, chaos, and harmony in free-form compositions that now unfurl across 12 full-length records and a near-limitless body of EPs, cassettes, and CD-Rs. On October 8th 2021, Matador Records will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the quintet’s long out-of-print second album and label debut, "Amanita," with a newly remastered 2xLP reissue. Recorded by the lineup of John Gibbons (guitar), Michael Gibbons (guitar), Isobel Sollenberger (voice, flute), Clint Takeda (bass), and Joe Culver (drums), "Amanita" is the place where the band’s collective spontaneous creativity blazed into maturity.
