Robert Pollard: Take me to Yolita (Fire Records, Single, 2014)

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays Robert Pollard from the swift completion of his latest brilliant record. Faulty Superheroes jets off Pollard’s vinyl-grooved runway like the prototype for some new super-sonic power pop fighter jet, and at this point in his career is anyone surprised that the twelve tracks on his latest effort are uniformly awesome? The answer is no. Exactly no one is surprised. The biggest thing Pollard has to contend is his own miraculously consistent greatness. That he rarely if ever stumbles is some kind of marvel, and perhaps implies superpowers of his own. If you see what we did there” (Press)

Robert Pollard: Up and Up and Up (Fire Records, Single, 2015)

Hablar en la época de las grabaciones digitales del LoFi puede parecer una entelequia. Pero hubo un tiempo en que personajes como Robert Pollard grababan sus canciones con muy poquitos medios y aún en menos tomas. Pollard vuelve esta primavera con nuevo disco, y este Up and Up and Up es su adelanto. Un bonito corte que nos muestra, más o menos, lo que el personaje ha hecho durante todos estos últimos años: cortes efectivos y emocionantes.
