-valis Pick of the Week
We are indeed trippin' inside THIS house! We're absolutely punch drunk on the new album by Baltimore's own Bad Liquor Pond!
Blue Smoke Orange Sky is set for release to the world at large this Friday, January 20th.
Their third full length, and first since 2008's Radiant Transmission, finds the band in full-on psychedelic mode from the start with the shambling "The Crescent Ship" and follows through on that promise throughout the remaining ten tracks. (Four years is a while between releases but it's clearly not been wasted on them.) There's an effortless '60s aesthetic at work here which suits the lyrical bent without rote aping of the first Golden Age.
Bad Liquor Pond will be playing an album release show this Friday, along with The Flying Eyes and Slow Jerks, at the Golden West Cafe in Baltimore, MD.
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Friday from 3 to 6am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
