Guided By Voices - "Keep It In Motion"

The reunited classic-lineup version of Guided By Voices appears to be back to its old prodigious ways. At the very beginning of the year, the band released the strong reunion album Let’s Go Eat The Factory. Just a few months later, they’re already planning to release their next full-length up on us. The next one is called Class Clown Spots A UFO, and it’s due to arrive in June. The first single is a sparkling power-popper called “Keep It In Motion,” and it’s streaming below.

The “Keep It In Motion” single is out 3/19 on Fire.

  1. Factory is already one of my favorite albums of the year thus far. Guess this was a fortunate time to get into them.

  2. This is pretty and all, but do the lyrics sound to anyone else like they were just laid down to try out a melody and meant to be replaced later? Not normally one to go after a band for inanity, but this is pretty bad.

    • While I agree that the lyrics leave something to be desired in and of themselves, I’m not bothered by them due to the close proximity to the release of the last album. It sounds like a statement of purpose. Sort of a “We just released an album two months ago. We’re keeping it in motion. We have another one in June. And another one not long after that.”

      • I hear what you’re saying, I guess I’m just mourning the track that could have been–this sounds awesome and it could have been a great song if it had gone anywhere at all.
