A long time fan of the man, music, and myth that is Ohio native Robert Pollard, Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11, Traffic and Erin Brockovich) didn’t have to look hard for someone to score his new movie, Bubble. Detailed information surrounding the film is still a bit sparse - the theatrical release date not being until 2006 - but we do know that it is a murder mystery that, in part, takes place ina doll factory in the aforementioned mythological state of Ohio. The songs here were recorded after Pollard visited the film set in April of this year. In the vein of 2004’s solo effort, Fiction Man, Bubble features Pollard naturally handling vocal and guitar duties with recent producer/collaborator Todd Tobias holding down the bass, drums, and keyboard. The six tracks featured here are best described as classic Pollard material (full-on rock songs, two of which are instrumentals ) that prove Pollard has set his sights on many great things post-GBV.This release marks the second EP-length release from Robert Pollard in 2005. It will precede the much hyped and long-whispered about second installment of Suitcase from the now-defunct Guided By Voices.
