The Bears for Lunch is their third album of 2012, following January's comeback Let's Go Eat the Factory and June's Class Clown Spots a UFO. But if all this new GBV material faithfully approximates the form and fidelity of the band's signature works, its impact has been diminished by a lack of context or conceptual vision. After all, Guided by Voices' 1994 critical breakthrough Bee Thousand was as much a triumph of judicious pruning as quality songcraft; the most important takeaway from this year is that Guided by Voices can still produce enough of the latter to allow for the luxury of the former.
In 1999, Guided by Voices switched gears in an effort to engage a brave new world entering a brand new century. Bandleader Robert Pollard brought in Cars frontman and power-pop ire Ric Ocasek to assist in his vision. Do the Collapse was born out of said vision; and it certainly sounded different. Was it pressure, whether self-imposed or label-enforced, that brought forth the overproduction? It was the band’s first album with TVT Records after leaving indie-darling Matador in its lo-fi dust. The Bears for Lunch, the band’s third album of the year, is another recommended effort that recalls what the band does best. It’s lo-fi with some hi-fi highlighting the in-betweens. It’s oft-sloppy musicianship that doesn’t play calculated in the slightest. It’s goofy, it’s moving. The songs are short, but sometimes feel epic.
