With Bardo Pond's record store day trilogy coming to an end, 2016's acclaimed Acid Guru Pond brought Bardo, Acid Mother's Temple and Guru Guru together. The Philadelphia groups output for RSD have been some of the most exciting and rewarding releases in recent years. Now for 2017's RSD they return with yet another special release, this time side project Curanderos. Formed by the improvised journeys of the formidable Bardo Pond and experimental ensemble Kohoutek, these compositions take you on a cosmic voyage through kosmiche, drone, noise, prog and free jazz. Purveyors of psychedelic rock, Bardo Pond have the outward specifications of a rock band but the rivers that converge into the band's oneiric flow have their headwaters in the outlands of ecstatic jazz, free noise and the avant-garde.
