Guided By Voices
Man Called Blunder / She wants To Know

Just because they are Guided By Voices they are releasing two singles from their forthcoming album Surrender Your Poppy Field on the same day. Here we have Man Called Blunder, which according to Robert Pollard is GBV’s best ever performance. It is backed with She Wants To Know which is a rerecorded version of the track from Forever Since Breakfast, the band’s 1986 debut album.

Guided By Voices
Warp and Woof

And Another! As Alan Partridge might say. Warp And Woof is Guided By Voices’ ultra-speedy follow-up to February’s double offering, Zeppelin Over China. Robert Pollard and co. have taken their already prolific nature and turbo charged it. This one prides itself on cramming lots of songs into less that 40 minutes, a similar feat to the band’s ‘90s classic Alien Lanes. Let's hope it matches it in quality too. On Guided By Voices Inc.

Guided By Voices
Sweating The Plague

Robert Pollard slams his hand down hard on the top of his guitar amplifier. Sweat pours from his brow; his eyes, heavily-bagged from the sleepless nights, glower with deranged intensity; his clothes are now but rags, ripped and filthy. ‘Again! Dammit, again! We’ll play … the songs … again.’ ‘B… but Robert’, pipes up one of his fellow Guided By Voices members - it’s hard to tell which seeing as all of the band are now a huddled mass, cowering in the darkest corner of the rehearsal room - ‘Robert, we’re exhausted. We’ve been in this room for three days, playing melodious indie-rock in the Hüsker Dü/Pavement mould non-stop, and we simply can’t go on any further. We need rest. We need food. We need to see our families. We’ve already released two LPs in 2019 anyway - isn’t that enough?’ ‘No!’ shouts Robert, punching a hole in the wall to emphasise his point. ‘No. We go again. We’ll be in here rehearsing our new record Sweating The Plague until it’s done, and it’s done why I say it’s done. Kapeesh?’ ‘Y… yes Robert.’

Guided By Voices
Styles We Paid For

A little issue like the almost complete shut-down of the music industry because of a deadly pandemic was never likely to prevent Robert Pollard from continuing to make music. Incredibly, ‘Styles We Paid For’ is Guided By Voices’ third album of 2020 alone and thirty-second in total. Recorded remotely in five different states, it’s heavy on Pollard’s latent passions for arena rock but also filled with bizarro imagery that feels particularly apt this year.

Guided By Voices
Surrender Your Poppy Field

Coming off the back of his 100-song marathon set on NYE in Los Angeles, Robert Pollard certainly doesn’t intend on slowing down in the new decade. Surrender Your Poppy Field is the 30th (thirtieth!!) Guided By Voices album, and something like the 105th Pollard has released overall. Phew. Furthermore, it stands to be one of his most adventurous yet, mixing shiny hook-laden psych-pop with lo-fi, spontaneously recorded efforts.

Guided By Voices
Mirrored Aztec

How many albums is it now? Let’s say...one billion. Guided By Voices return (although it’s not as if they really went away) with Mirrored Aztec. It’s their 5th album in 18 months and this time they’ve gone for hooks-a-plenty and a summer vibe. To throw a few curveballs our way though, they’ve employed a school choir and tried their hand at the complex sub-genre Math Rock with a song called, well, ‘Math Rock’.

Guided By Voices
Live From Austin, TX

Back in 2004, Robert Pollard had decided that Guided By Voices, a band that had been his baby for more than 20 years, had run it’s course. Live From Austin, Texas was one of the band’s final gigs, and you can now share the emotional night with them again. Available on 2LP vinyl or 2CD+DVD. It needs to be pointed out that Guided By Voices reformed in 2012 and have released a further 9 albums to date.

Robert Pollard
Of Course You Are

Guided By Voices’ leader Robert Pollard is back with another solo outing (his twenty-fourth(!)), a suite of classically rock-based tunes and dextrous songwriting.. One track even has an appearance from that deliciously proggy instrument, the mellotron. Of Course You Are is released on the Fire America label.

Robert Pollard
Faulty Superheroes

A couple of months have passed since the relentlessly prolific Robert Pollard unleashed his post-Guided By Voices project, Ricked Wicky on us, therefore he’s overdue a solo release. On Faulty Superheroes, Pollard delivers twelve power-pop-ish nuggets with his typically imperfect, effortless swagger.

Teenage Guitar
More Lies From The Gooseberry Bush

Robert Pollard is the ringleader of the merry indie rock men Guided By Voices, who have been releasing dozens upon dozens of records since the late 80s. Pollard is renowned for making surreal jangle pop classics that are snipped off at the ends, traditionally playing them out at under two minutes at length. As such, he's got a lot of time to write more songs: his average output a year is about ten records, under about five different aliases. Teenage Guitar is yet another solo project of his, and brings forth the bizarre, experimental reaches of his brain for a concept album with thousands of tracks (well, like, twenty-odd). It's arguably his most conceptual record since Guided By Voices' 'Mag Earwhig!', full of lo-fi humming and loose vignettes. Billed by Pollard and PopMatters as being more Pollard than Pollard, this is definitely an album by Robert Pollard.    Tracks: Go Around (The Apartment Dwellers) Spliced At Acme Fair A Guaranteed Ratio Good Mary's House Skin Ride Full Glass Gone All You Fought For Gear OP No Escape Matthew's Ticker and Shaft  a. come to breakfast b. the girls arrive c. division of swans d. when death has a nice ring The Instant American Normalized New Light Birthplace of the Electric Starter A Year That Could Have Been Worse

Robert Pollard
Honey Locust Honky Tonk

Guided By Voices’ Robert Pollard seems to be pathologically incapable of not releasing music. One of the several million records he’s put out in his incredibly prolific career is 2013’s Honey Locust Honky Tonk, a solo LP of cerebral rock vignettes. The dreamier corners of The Shins and Eels are invoked by this sweet set.

Guided By Voices
Half Smiles Of The Decomposed

'Half Smiles of the Decomposed' was the final Guided By Voices album in their first life before several years of myriad of solo projects prior to their return in 2010. As a result the album always had an air of finality about it particularly in closer 'Huffman Prairie Flying Field' but it's full of their usual razor sharp riffs and pop classic melodies particularly the effortless power-pop of 'Girls of Wild Strawberry'. If you like GBV, you'll need this.

Guided By Voices
Vampire On Titus

The first album that saw Guided By Voices reach anything approaching national exposure was conversely one of their most lo-fi efforts. Vampire On Titus was a hastily recorded rackety thing but beneath the noise you can hear the bursts of pop that would cement them as one of the prime movers in the alternative scene of the '90s and beyond. Now re-issued on a choice of vinyl and excitingly Robert Pollard's original insert now expanded so it is readable.
