Welcome to the commencement of 2013’s Guided By Voices recorded output. Please take your seats quickly. For those who slept through 2012, the Dayton, OH, rock legends released three hugely-acclaimed albums last year and toured throughout the United States of America, including Florida. Bandleader Robert Pollard also put out two solo albums, a couple issues of his collage-heavy zine Eat, as well as a “Best Of” record by his other old band Boston Spaceships, and conquered the moon, probably.

Down by the Racetrack is Guided By Voices stretching out in a way not seen since early- to mid-’90s EPs like Get Out My Stations or Clown Prince of the Menthol Trailer. It’s a particular kind of lo-fi weirdness, from the spooky background “aahs” on “Pictures of the Man” to the drunk piano bashing on “Standing in a Puddle of Flesh.” The mix of wild, tossed-off vocals, raw guitar chug and skewed “Eleanor Rigby” / “See Emily Play” sweetness could only have originated from the Midwest-warped minds of Dayton’s canniest rock warlocks.
