Go for the Exit

After calling Guided by Voices quits just four short years ago, Bob Pollard, the quits-caller, has released about eight solo albums, plus various EPs and albums with side projects (e.g., the Takeovers, Keene Brothers, Circus Devils, etc.). To call him prolific is nearly an understatement, as it’s hard to imagine Pollard having time for anything but recording high-kicking, lo-fi rock ’n’ roll jams all day, every day. He’s recently—presumedly in the two weeks since his last solo album release—been working with a former GBV bandmate, Chris Slusarenko, and John Moen of the Decemberists, among others. The result, a group called Boston Spaceships, sounds like just about everything else Pollard’s ever been party to, so I like it. So do you.
