MP3: Robert Pollard – “Rud Fins” from Coast to Coast Carpet of Love, out now on Merge.
MP3: Robert Pollard – “The Killers” from Standard Gargoyle Decisions, also out now on Merge.
For these two new releases, Pollard has put together two markedly different albums — one focuses on his super-catchy pop side the other his more down and dirty rock side. It’s like Beatles Vs. Stones! A battle to the death and, of course, Bob emerges as the victor.
Happy 50th birthday, Bob! You crazy, prolific son of a bitch!
