Oberhofer at MHOW in 2011 (more by Bryan Bruchman)

Oberhofer, who signed to Glassnote for his debut LP, has announced that the album will be called Time Capsules II and it will be released on March 27. We've already posted the new wave-y album cut, "Gotta Go," which you can also grab at the top of this post. He just revealed a second track from the album, "HEART," which you can download above and stream below. The album also includes a number of tracks from his o0Oo0Oo EP, including the EP favorite, "Away FRM U." Album art and tracklist, and some video footage from the making of the album are below too.

They'll be touring in support of the album with Pond supporting most dates. That tour hits NYC on March 21 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public Friday (1/20) at noon. The tour also includes the sold out Coachellas and a number of other dates. All dates are listed below.


If you're unfamiliar with Pond, they formed a few years ago in Australia and have released three full length albums since 2009. Members Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson have since been playing in another band that you're probably more familiar with; Tame Impala. After Nick and Jay returned home after extensive touring with Tame Impala, they've decided to release another album with Pond, called Beard Wives Denim, and it's coming out on March 6 via Modular, who also put out the Tame Impala album. You can download the single, "Fantastic Explosion of Time," above, and stream it and watch the video for it below.

Wasn't there a band named Pond from the 90s?

No Pond on the Colorado date?! :(

Tame Impala isn't great, but their drummer is a beast.

Pond: A Handful Of Talentless Well Connected Fucks

Posted by Anonymous | January 20, 2012 12:55 AM

Hey, if any members of Oberhofer read this, dudes, put the song that you dedicated to all the grandfathers and grandmothers in the audience at 4Knots last summer on the LP, that jam into that song, plus the song itself was FUCKING AMAZING.

Have yet to find a clip of that on YouTube :(.

11:30 - Tame Impala is basically a one man show, studio-wise.... the front man recorded almost all the drum tracks on the album. He is a beast. I personally dig them but I know its not for everyone.

The person sitting in the middle of the couch looks like the guy from the original dawn of the dead when he is like halfway to becoming a zombie.

^ That's a chick. But everything else you said is pretty accurate

Pond are a great example that you really don't need talent to tour the world, all you need is good connections. One of the most over hyped hipster bands in Perth atm! They know how to act like rock stars but musically they can't deliver shit. I hope this fad of 70's revivalist/elitist bands comes to an end soon, peace.

to the person who said "^ That's a chick. But everything else you said is pretty accurate", that's NICK ALLBROOK who is a MAN not a female. he just has boyish features and long hair but he is not a woman.

That's a woman. May have the old twig n' berries, but all hipsters are women. Facial hair just means the hormone treatments are working. True fact.
