With their never-ending release schedule, perhaps it’s time we come up with a template for Guided By Voices releases. You know the drill: potent, powerful anthemic rock with oblique and abstract lyrics sung with enthusiasm by Robert Pollard. “Mr. Child” is no exception; Pollard and company proudly fly their Who influence here. It’s a catchy number, a fine addition to the band’s massive discography. Styles We Paid For, the band’s (insert large number) album, was recorded in quarantine, but it’s to their credit it sounds like they’re in the same room. “Mr. Child” only whets our appetite for its arrival.
