Vinyl LP pressing. 2012 release from the prolific Indie singer, songwriter and Guided By Voices leader. Even for a guy whose famously abundant output makes a joke of the word prolific, this has been a spectacularly productive year for Robert Pollard. Jack Sells the Cow is his second solo album in a year that has already seen the release of two records by the reunited Guided By Voices and will see yet a third before it's done. The superabundance of melody and densely packed stylistic swerves and flourishes on Jack rival anything Pollard's recorded recently. Jack Sells the Cow sails over the moon of your heart in a snappy 32-plus minutes and, despite the lyrics' sometimes heavy subject matter, comes off as perhaps the sprightliest, most light-footed music Pollard has recorded this year. Of the quincunx of Bob-related releases this year, we'd suggest you put this one in the center, and hold tight. These suckers move.
