While we can all agree that it has become virtually impossible to keep track of all of Bob Pollard’s bands’ releases, this one is distinct. “Islands (She Talks In Rainbows)” has a soulful garage feel that does not resemble the Who- and Beatles-worshipping GBV typicality of yore. It no longer remains a question: The classic GBV lineup (Pollard, Sprout, Demos, Mitchell and Fennell) has retrenched itself as a unit. Now that Twinkies are going the way of the dodo, it has become clear that, at the end of the world, the only things left will be cockroaches and Guided By Voices.
