Pond — Beard, Wives, Denim (March 6)

Pond generally get described as a Tame Impala side project, which isn’t entirely fair — sure, they certainly share members with the precociously talented Australian psych trio, but they’re also very much an ongoing proposition in their own right. Beard, Wives, Denim is their fourth record together, and it’s streaming at the Hype Machine this week, so you can listen via the embedded player below. Alternatively, you can just smoke about 36 cones and freak out to the video above. It’s all up to you.
