Published Nov 27, 2013Drummer woes or not, prolific indie rock powerhouse Guided By Voices are gearing up to release their billionth LP Motivational Jumpsuit on February 8 via their own GBV Inc. label. Now, we get a taste of the album with "Littlest League Possible."
The remarkably brief track offers up palm-muted guitars and doubled up vocals, slowly building up towards a noisy punk-tinged rocker. The whole thing's done in a mere 78 seconds.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Robert Pollard explained that the song descibes his decidedly unambitious role in the band. "No competition, no pressure, no rules. The way I do things now is an absolute blast. I think one earns it when entering one's golden years. It also means that you don't necessarily have to act your age," he said.
