Hey. Happy New Year. Good to see you! How was your blah, blah, blah? …Okay, enough catching up; let’s get to business. After all, it’s 2 days into 2019, and Robert Pollard’s ALREADY hitting the ground running with Guided By Voices’ latest (and therefore GREATEST) collection of good ol’ dependable guitar-rock.
The sprawling, 32-song, seventy-five minute Zeppelin Over China will crash-land with a mighty thud on February 1. It features Doug Gillard (guitar), Kevin March (drums), Mark Shue (bass), Bobby Bare Jr. (guitar), and Travis Harrison (engineer); and you can rest rhetorically-assured (by the album’s press release) that “this line-up’s virtuosic talents spur him to his most ambitious work yet, a grand album of emotional resonance and narrative drama.”
In other words: it’s Pollard, baby. You know what to do: listen to a few sample tracks down below — and if you find your head softly banging, use some of that holiday cash you racked-up recently to pre-order the entirety of Zeppelin Over China here.
