Guided By Voices - Under The Bushes, Under The Stars


  • £20.99

Originally released 1996 on Matador Records, Under The Bushes, Under The Stars is the ninth album by the prolific Guided By Voices. 

Formed in 1983 in Dayton, OH by Robert Pollard, inspired by British post-punk and 'sixties garage-rock, the band's ever-changing personnel briefly settled on the 'classic' formation of Pollard, Tobim Sprout, Mitch Mitchell and Kevin Fennell during the mid-'nineties, with Under The Bushes... being the last of the 'nineties albums to feature this line-up. Following their breakthrough album, Alien Lanes, it was also their first album to depart from their trade-mark home-recorded 4-track sound, and was recorded in a series of studios with various producers, including Steve Albini (Shellac, Big Black) and fellow Daytonian Kim Deal (The Breeders, Pixies). The results however remain pleasingly lo-fi and unpolished, and, despite the disparate nature of the production, is a perfectly-formed album of subtly-brilliant indie-rock pop songs that grows richer with every listen.
