Tasmania is the eighth studio album by Australian psychedelic rock band Pond, released in March 2019 via Spinning Top.

Formed in Perth by Tame Impala members Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson, with fellow Perth musician "Shiny" Joe Ryan (who does the visuals for Tame Impala) in 2008, Pond was founded with the intention of being a collaborative music project where the trio could get anyone they wanted to play whatever they wanted. The band's first album, Psychedelic Mango was recorded in 2009 on the band's 8-track in Nick's parent's house.

Following the success of Tame Impala's 2010 debut album Innerspeaker, the band recorded another album, Beard, Wives, Denim, adding Jamie Terry, and Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker to the band's line-up, and releasing the album in 2012 following the band's North American tour, and appearance at South by Southwest. The same year Pond were named "The Hottest New Band In The World" by NME in their "Hot List" issue.

As with previous Pond albums, Tasmania is also produced by former member and Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker.

Tasmania is Pond’s dejected meditation on planetary discord, water, machismo, shame, blame and responsibility, love, blood and empire, all wrapped in luxurious, funky prog-pop, produced and mixed by Kevin Parker and Pond; and another essential instalment in their always expanding canon.

Featuring the singles “Daisy”, “Sixteen Days” and lead track “Burnt Out Star”, Tasmania is some kind of sister missive to their 2017 opus The Weather.

Tasmania coats an undercurrent of restless, anxious dread in a sheen of light, apathetic content - both real and parody - rather than wallowing in self-pity, encouraging us to celebrate the fruits of our planet, frolic in the ocean, kick up the dust, roll in the grass and enjoy the feeling of being in love - while we still can.

Tasmania reached #15 on the Australian ARIA albums chart.

This double album 2LP record set is on clear coloured vinyl at 45 RPM housed in gatefold sleeve with OBI strip, printed inner sleeves and download code, pressed in Australia via Spinning Top Music.
