Let's Go Eat the Factory

Genre: Indie Rock; Music Label: Guided by Voices Inc.

It’s been 15 years since the ”classic” GBV lineup stopped putting out the tuneful, delightfully shambolic albums that became their ­signature. Now reunited and intent on rebottling that boozy magic, the boys have dusted off their four-tracks and revisited their basements. Like previous efforts, Let’s Go Eat the Factory seats shining riffsters alongside hypnotically inscrutable interludes, though much of it sounds more belabored and less beer-soaked than those of yore.

Delicate ditty Who Invented the Sun
