Even though February feels like another lifetime, it was only two months ago. It was back in February that we brought you a Friday Freebie in the form of Comet Pond's 2019 album And to Think. This past Monday (4/20, of course) they released a new album. Spirit is everything we loved about And to Think, but even more so. Spirit is filled with these laid back indie rock jams that border on being power ballads. Songs like "Want" and "For You" are like a combination of Nada Surf and Sebadoh's more sensitive side. "Dreamt" keeps that up, but with a slight hint of a country twang. "Rock and Roll Guitar" is a more organic shoegaze that leans towards Americana. "Come Down" is a bizarro New Wave track that gets a little new agey at times. Comet Pond are becoming masterful at feeling very familiar on your first listen but burying sounds deep into the song to find once you go back. Spirit is going to be worth your time the more and more you listen.
You can listen to "Dreamt" below. Spirit is available for the "name your price" option at Comet Pond's Bandcamp. If you choose the free option, be sure to give them a follow on Facebook.
