Guided by Voices just released their great new album Earth Man Blues last week and, not wasting much time, the band's sunshine pop alter egos ("thinly-veiled alias" reads promo copy), Cub Scout Bowling Pins, have announced their debut album. (CSBP released their debut EP back in January.) It's titled Clang Clang Ho and will be out on July 2 via Rockathon Records.
First single from the album is opening track "Magic Taxi." Featuring orchestral synths and what sound like oboes and cellos, the song is rainbow-colored psych pop with lines like "Take a trip in my magic taxi, I drive a snowman to the equator." Listen to that and check out the artwork and tracklist below.
