Guided By Voices - The Bears For Lunch 12 inch
It may have taken some time, but in 2012 the Guided by Voices (still in “classic era” mode) adhere to that belief. The Bears for Lunch, the band’s third album of the year, is another recommended effort that recalls what the band does best. It’s lo-fi with some hi-fi highlighting the in-betweens. It’s oft-sloppy musicianship that doesn’t play calculated in the slightest. It’s goofy, it’s moving. The songs are short, but sometimes feel epic. With these blurbs one could label it as “Guided by Voices by the Numbers,” but so what? Why change the process when the end result equates to this?
