Don’t you think Robert Pollard must be one of the luckiest rock and rollers ever? He continues to do what he loves and doesn’t allow normal contraints to hold him back. How sweet is that?
More releases from Bob are due out next week (October 9) and Merge is streaming them both. Your choice: Coast to Coast Carpet of Love or Standard Gargoyle Decisions. Supposedly the latter is the “darker” of the two. Both sound good to me. I’ll spare comparing them to anything he’s previously recorded because 1) well, what good does that do and 2) I don’t know his catalog backwards and forwards.
Sidenote: How many bloggers have chosen NOT to mention the ‘big’ Radiohead news today? (whoops, does that just count?)
