It’s the best of Robert Pollard’s recent side projects.
Many people only know Robert Pollard as being the vocalist for the band Guided By Voices but in recent years he has taken on a number of different, equally as good projects. The compilation, The Kids Eat It Up, takes the best songs from Pollard’s various projects over the last two years and gives you a sample of the great stuff he’s been doing. Many of the tracks seem reminiscant of the Flaming Lips, while other songs like ‘Arrows and Balloons’ remind me of late 60s psychedelic pop songs. If you want to get a taste of what Pollard has been up to in the past few years, than you definitely want to give this a listen.
