When we last heard from Guided By Voices, they had released an
astonishing four albums in just over 12 months. Each has a distinctive
creative identity: Zeppelin Over China was a meat-and-potatoes
double album, Warp And Woof was a return to the band’s low-fidelity
roots and under-two-minute earworms, Sweating The Plague was a
slice of moody stadium rock, and Surrender Your Poppy Field was an
unpredictable grab-bag of all of the above. After venturing through the
tangled brambles of Plague and Poppy Field, here is a sunny summer
reprieve, a relentless barrage of hooks—Mirrored Aztec is the latest
stop on this runaway train.
Like its immediate predecessors, Mirrored Aztec is both its own
entity and unmistakably GBV. It’s also their most immediately
welcoming and inviting offering in years—there’s nothing a fan of
The Who, Big Star, or Wire, wouldn’t love. For the GBV uninitiated,
the clean, confident hooks of highlights “Bunco Men,” “Haircut
Sphinx,” “A Whale Is Top Notch,” “Party Rages On” and the strummy
“To Keep An Area” will resonate immediately. It also contains some
unprecedented GBV moments, too, like “Math Rock,” an apparent
tribute to the titular subgenre featuring classroom instruments and
a children’s choir, “Please Don’t Be Honest,” a dreamy reversal of
the band’s 2016 song and album Please Be Honest, and “Thank You
Jane,” perhaps the most open-hearted, guileless power-pop song
from Pollard’s pen in ages.
If Pollard’s discography—107 albums and counting—seems
intimidating, do not fear! With a brand-new, high-quality, all-the-waythere
album every several months, it’s abundantly clear that no band’s
fanbase has more fun.
FMD carries a cornucopia of other GBV / Robert Pollard related
