New: Guided By Voices – Class Clown Spots a UFO

Not a review, but a gentle nod to the fact that there is a new GBV album in the world called Class Clown Spots a UFO. Always something to look forward to, even if they don’t always hit the mark. The point is, sometimes music feels a little jaded to these ears and Robert Pollard rarely leaves me feeling jaded. When he’s on form he has a knack for nailing some of the best melodies ever committed to pop and on the title track below he manages to stitch several of these together into a gorgeous fade-out chorus. Welcome back GBV.

  1. I like the ‘this is not a review’ line!

    I’ve never really got into ‘Guided by Voices’, what album should I try?

  2. I guess the obvious ones people will say are Bee Thousand, Alien Lanes … two kinda cult classics. I quite liked Under The Bushes Under The Stars also …
