Bardo Thodol – Liberation Through Hearing During The Intermediate State

You can float along with most of these songs. “Cracker Wrist” and “Don’t Know About You” are my picks, although all the tracks are good on here. All songs are longish except for “Don’t Know About You” (4 minutes +). Average length is about 10 minutes for most tracks. “Undone”, while certainly listenable, is about 17 minutes too long.

Reminds me a little bit of My Bloody Valentine without the overly complex production. Songs are generally down tempo with heft + mass but manage to stay away from being ponderous. Isobel Sollenberger’s voice (some kind of cross between PJ Harvey + Kim Gordon) stands out effortlessly + possesses clarity complimenting + contrasting the guitars. -pArcel pOst
