Aussie quintet POND has released Sessions, a live record of their studio performances that cover songs that date back to their 2009’s debut LP Psychedelic Mango to this year’s album Tasmania. Hit play:

On the new record, POND’s Jay Watson shared:

“We wanted to capture how the band has been playing live lately and commit that to tape while we were in the middle of a long tour. As you play the same song for years, or even as a single tour rolls on, the way you play the songs mutates. Little inflections and fills become part of the song, and the structures and even the overall feeling and intent of the songs change. I always loved listening to my favorite bands’ ‘Peel Sessions’ and wanted something of our own in that vein. We hope you dig it!”
