On January 26th, Tame Impala offshoot Pond will release their new album, Man It Feels Like Space Again. The nine-track effort is the psych rock outfit's sixth LP to date and follows last year's Hobo Rocket.

Man It Feels Like Space Again lives up to the inherent wonder in its title, a sweeping collection of warm, warped psychedelic gems. It brings to mind the work of The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, mid-'70s Lennon, MGMT, Todd Rundgren, Supergrass and any number of other genre-hopping sonic/space-explorers.

The album covers an extraordinary amount of ground in its 45 minutes. Opener 'Waiting Around For Grace' sounds like an FM pop hit beamed in from a nearby planet, all wonky propulsion and giddy hooks - the perfect opening blast. 'Elvis's Flaming Star' stomps like a '70s glam band coached by Bowie, before collapsing into and out of a mid-tune daydream.

Elsewhere on the record there are blissed-out ballads ('Sitting Up On Our Crane', 'Holding Out For You'), twisted, futuristic raves ('Zond'), lysergic epics drenched in reverb ('Heroic Shart'), and the gorgeous 6/8 classic 'Medicine Hat'. By the time you hit the finale: the out-of-control, ever-shifting eight-minute title track, it definitely feels like space... again, man.
