Guided By Voices
Who said that climate change couldn’t be useful? Certainly not Robert Pollard and his Guided By Voices brethren! It turns out that the chilling temperatures and unprecedented snowfall of the Polar Vortex practically forced them indoors in order to churn out infinite amounts of laundry-room lo-fi, just like they did in the halcyon (and warmer?) days of their mid-90’s peak. Pollard, Tobin Sprout and company are certainly older than they were when Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes dropped, but they’ve never been more prolific, releasing six new studio albums since 2012. This month’s Cool Planet plays like a whiskey-spiked toddy: warm and soothing on a sub-zero day and slightly intoxicating.
