Bad Liquor Pond – Blue Smoke Orange Sky (2012) review

Bad Liquor Pond “Blue Smoke Orange Sky” (2012)
I sincerely doubt that any of the songs lifted from Blue
Smoke Orange Sky
could pass a drug test, as the duo of Dave Gibson and Poridge
Blackwell mix a hazy concoction of bright wide-awake psychedelia, where they
trip-out the genre of shoegaze by keeping all of the songs to a manageable
length, lacing the edges with bits of jangling Americana and retro 60’s garage
psych smoke-rings to mindfully edge you on, and spaciously enlighten your trip.
This is their third album, and was a delight to my senses as
it melted between my ears, ebbing the warm summer galaxies ever closer.  Bad Liquor Pond understand the nature of what
they’re doing, and that in itself is no minor achievement, where the listener
seems to be held on an outstretched feather, as the boys envelop and divide,
putting all of their energies into first rate songwriting and delivery,
managing to avoid the pitfalls of escalating and expansive stoner jams.
This is full spirited psychedelic music at it’s very best
… and at just the right altitude.
*** The album cover is in perfect step with their music,
harking back images of the notorious Acid Test posters of the early 60’s.
