Better Than Ever:  Guided By Voices – “See My Field”

Guided By Voices

“See My Field”

Space Gun

Yes, Guided By Voices are back, stronger than ever, and just in time to kick off the near year with an album that is even stronger than anything Robert Pollard has released in the past, if that is even possible.  “With a renowned work ethic and a daily pot of coffee, Pollard continues to outclass younger generations of come-and-go rock bands. After 20+ years, 100+ albums, 2000+ songs, Pollard still can’t really explain (or doesn’t want to explain) his secret:  “The songs just come to me.”  In 2017, the new GBV line-up (veterans Doug Gillard and Kevin March and newcomers Mark Shue and Bobby Bare Jr) blew away audiences at Coachella and Growlers Fest”, with good reason.  I always have been a GBV fan, but this new album even blew me away.  Check them out.  Some bands truly improve with age, like a good wine.
