Since re-forming with a new lineup in 2016, Guided by Voices have already released four albums, with two more on the way. In other words, the Ohio alt-rock band have been more productive in their presumed afterlife than most groups manage to be during their entire careers. 2018’s Space Gun is GBV’s 25th album overall, and it finds longtime leader Robert Pollard backed by returning guitarist Doug Gillard (Death of Samantha, Cobra Verde) — who is sort of the Buckeye State’s answer to Mick Ronson — and new guitarist Bobby Bare Jr., an estimable lead singer and songwriter in his own right. Being prolific isn’t necessarily the same as writing memorable tunes, but Pollard covers a lot of interesting territory, blending anthemic classic-rock melodies with enigmatic lyrics, such as in “Ark Technician” and “Sport Component National.”
