Guided By Voices

Down By The Racetrack

Guided By Voices, Inc. 28

Released on January 22, 2013


Welcome to the commencement of 2013’s Guided By Voices recorded output. Please take your seats quickly. For those who slept through 2012, the Dayton, OH, rock legends released three hugely-acclaimed albums last year and toured throughout the United States of America, including Florida. Bandleader Robert Pollard also put out two solo albums, a couple issues of his collage-heavy zine Eat, as well as a “Best Of” record by his other old band Boston Spaceships, and conquered the moon, probably. Down by the Racetrack is Guided By Voices stretching out in a way not seen since early- to mid-’90s EPs like Get Out My Stations or Clown Prince of the Menthol Trailer. It’s a particular kind of lo-fi weirdness, from the spooky background “aahs” on “Pictures of the Man” to the drunk piano bashing on “Standing in a Puddle of Flesh.” The mix of wild, tossed-off vocals, raw guitar chug and skewed “Eleanor Rigby” / “See Emily Play” sweetness could only have originated from the Midwest-warped minds of Dayton’s canniest rock warlocks.
