It's the fifth day of 2022 and Guided by Voices have announced their first, but probably not last, album of year. Crystal Nuns Cathedral, which is the band's 35th album, will be out March 4 via Guided By Voices Inc. Says the label: "This record is a statement, a challenge, a monument, a call to arms. Top this one if you can, this is the new benchmark. Who will best it? Who will try?"
The first single is "Excited Ones," yet another supercatchy powerpop number from Robert Pollard's endless bank of these, that once again tips its hat towards The Who. Listen to that below.
