(Sevens, a recurring feature on Aquarium Drunkard, pays tribute to the art of the individual song.) I’m not sure who you trust, but I hope it’s not a musician. Chalk Robert Pollard’s Guided By Voices up as the latest group to renege on their promise not to reunite, not to tour, and not to record […]

The dig…parsing through the archives, the muck. I suppose it’s what separates the men from the boys when it comes to the Robert Pollard canon.  Pollard, who on average releases several albums of material per year (going back to the early Guided By Voices days) is set to drop Let It Beard on August 2nd—a […]

With an average release schedule of 3-4 titles per year even the most ardent fans of the Pollard faithful can turn skeptic. And rightly so. This, the 1st release from the newly christened Guided by Voices label, is both refreshing and the most rewarding release Pollard has issued since 2006′s From A Compound Eye, which […]

I’m sitting in a hotel room approximately 100 miles east of Amarillo, TX in what may very well be the definition of a one horse town (and this being west Texas, I mean that both literally and figuratively). Might I also add that if you ever find yourselves in Amarillo, TX, do pay a visit […]
