Beyond the Pond is a bi-weekly podcast in which Brian Brinkman (@sufferingjuke) and David Goldstein (@daveg924) use the music of Phish as a gateway to introduce the listener to many other bands, the vast majority of which are not jambands. An episode generally begins with a deep dive into a designated portion of Phish improvisation, and then can spin off to any variety of musical themes and other acts, the overarching purpose being introducing the listener to as many new and different bands as possible.

This week on Beyond the Pond, we face plant into rock!!! “i rokk” that is, as we take a deep dive into the second set at Phish’s recent Halloween show, where they “covered” the brilliant “lost album” i rokk by obscure Scandinavian psych-rock masters Kasvot Vaxt. To do this, we enlist the help of our good friend and repeat Beyond the Pond guest Ben Greenfield (@GuyForgetOPT).

In addition to dissecting the Halloween gig, we tear into the other, similarly awesome Las Vegas 2018 shows, and showcase non-Phish albums from actual Scandinavian psych-rock bands, as well as bands that created alter-egos in the name of confusing their fans excellently.

We appreciate you listening, and are certain that you will learn something new over the course of just under two hours. You can review and subscribe to Beyond the Pond on iTunes, or simply listen through the player below.
