Guided By Voices – Keep It In Motion – 7″
“Keep It In Motion” 7-inch on bright pink vinyl
“Keep It In Motion” is a propulsive, drum-machine driven pop song which features, unusually, acoustic guitars, strings, and Robert Pollard / Tobin Sprout singing together in a way not heard since “14 Cheerleader Coldfront” on 1992’s Propeller. Possibly. Bob recorded and sent to Toby at his home studio in Michigan for over-dubbing.
The B-Sides consist of “Pink Wings,” a lo-fi snippet on which Pollard speak-sings scary lyrics about wings full of blood over a bed of Beatle-esque harmonies, not entirely unlike Alien Lanes’ “Chicken Blows,” and “White World,” an actual Beatle-esque pop song with horns (or at least horn samples) and a Pixies-like bass intro.
The A-side is taken from the Guided by Voices album, ‘Class Clown Spots a UFO’. There will be a series of three 7″s from this release starting with “Keep it in Motion” and followed by “Jon the Croc” (17 April) and “Class Clown Spots a UFO” (15 May).
