The Australian psychedelic pop band Pond, which features Tame Impala drummer Jay Watson, takes listeners on a retro-futuristic odyssey throughout its new album, Man It Feels Like Space Again. With a vintage glam-rock vibe that brings to mind David Bowie and T-Rex, "Elvis' Flaming Star" is filled with explosions, otherworldly sounds and dizzying time changes. A sense of creativity and fun permeates the song, which calls to mind the playful antics of Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips. The results are wonderfully intoxicating.

Man It Feels Like Space Again is out today on Caroline.
