Get That Final Summer Feeling From Pond’s Beard, Wives, Denim

Pong

Perth’s Pond is a psych-rock outfit that shares not just genre but two members with fellow indie rockers Tame Impala. Their debut album is Beard, Wives, Denim, all through which you can hear the band’s sun-drenched, psychedelic 60s influences. Autumn is just beginning and this is the perfect album to hold on to Summer with those last few backyard get-togethers. Don’t miss this one — listen to Beard, Wives, Denim now.
