Set and Setting LP/CD
Released by Matador Records (OLE 364) in August 1999.
After a little bit a break, the Pond returns with an amazing 3rd record for Matador. Their strongest start-to-finish effort yet? Quite possibly, that's for damn sure. Clocking in at a hair under an hour, there are several long drone-outs that will make the long time fan extremely pleased. Listening to this album it is clear to tell exactly what direction all of the work on Amanita and Lapsed was headed towards: pure drone bliss. Love this album. Reviews coming once they start to appear in magazines and other media sources everywhere.
