3 AM Eternal: Tobin Sprout “Let Go of My Beautiful Balloon” (2001)


Understated” is perhaps the best adjective to use when describing Guided By Voices guitarist Tobin Sprout. Though his offerings in the GBV catalog are few and far between, those offerings have been recognized as some of the band’s better moments. His solo releases pale in comparison with Bob Pollard, which, again, is okay, because his records are always lovely, gentle affairs. There are many songs I could pick from, but I really like this track, the A-side of a 2001 single. It’s lovely psychedelic pop, with a lo-fi edge to it that makes it feel quite warm and inviting. Enjoy!
