Robert Pollard “Up And Up And Up”

With the latest break up of Guided By Voices, Robert Pollard‘s prolific songwriting is beginning to take many forms. Earlier this month, he released the debut album from his new project, Ricked Wicky. Now, he announces a new solo album called Faulty Superheroes–out April 28th. The album’s lead single is “Up And Up And Up.” While the track shares a similar power pop pedigree as much of the GbV catalog, Pollard’s voice seems a bit shaky, stretching to hit the higher notes. Is decades of hard living finally catching up with Pollard? I guess we’ll have to wait to hear the entirety of Faulty Superheroes to determine that.
