Guided by Voices announce new record, English Little League, while Robert Pollard nonchalantly promises three GBV records every year forever

Since Robert Pollard is still alive and since it is Friday, Guided by Voices have announced that they’re releasing a new record. On April 29, Fire Records will put out English Little League, Guided by Voices’ fourth record since reuniting their classic mid-90s lineup. To put it in slightly different terms, it will be Guided By Voices’ fourth record in a 15-month period. To really hammer the point home, Guided by Voices are incredibly prolific and Robert Pollard is more machine than man.

To achieve better efficiency as a man-machine, Pollard recently had a recording studio installed in his house. Though English Little League wasn’t entirely recorded there, certain songs were, making them the first released output from Pollard’s new home base. This new studio will help the songwriter in fulfilling his ambitious (though, in a way, very ordinary in this context) plan of releasing three new Guided By Voices records every year from now until the end of time. Inevitably, this will be in addition to a handful of annual solo releases. Maybe a Boston Spaceships record in there. Maybe the ascension of Robert Pollard from man-machine to being of pure energy. I don’t know, Pollard says it may not all go as planned, maybe he’ll just possess a golem.
