Robert Pollard – “I Can Illustrate”

’90s lo-fi heroes Guided By Voices (or a new GBV lineup, anyway) are coming back again this summer; they’re booked to headline Calgary’s Sled Island festival in June. Before this version of the old band reconvenes, though, endlessly prolific frontman Robert Pollard has a new solo album called Of Course You Are coming out next month. We’ve already posted the early track “My Daughter Yes She Knows,” and now Pollard has shared another one, a chunky and catchy rocker called “I Can Illustrate.” It comes piled high with Pollard’s signature scrappy hooks, and it lasts nearly three and a half minutes, an eternity for a Pollard song. Check it out below.

Of Course You Are is out 3/4 on Fire Records.
