pollard1 Robert Pollard announces new solo album: Jack Sells the Cow

After we named him one of the most restless acts in music today, Robert Pollard has gone ahead and reassured our diagnosis by announcing the release of his second solo album this year and his 18th solo effort overall. Jack Sells the Cow serves as the follow up to March’s Mouseman Cloud, and will be released September 18th on CD and October 2nd on vinyl via GBV Inc. No tracklist is available yet, but the record is said to run 32 minutes and to be “perhaps the sprightliest, most light-footed music Pollard has recorded this year.” The rather verbose press release continues:

The superabundance of melody and densely packed stylistic swerves and flourishes on Jack rival anything Pollard’s recorded recently, and while five albums in a year might strike some as overkill, you have to imagine his relentless output is a less-than-calculated move — a smarter businessman would hold back product so as to build demand, but Robert Pollard has never been a businessman. He’s an artist, full stop, at a time when it seems that every artist / musician is expected to have an MBA. He’s scrapped enough proposed albums to fill many another group’s entire discography; he puts out records because he likes the records. And he hopes you’ll like them too.”

Hey, we’re not complaining. Be sure to check out the album artwork above and stay posted for more information on the record.

I have to hear every thought he has, and I have to enjoy it with cold beer. If there was a new Pollard release every week I’d buy it.

James, calm down. You don’t have to listen to any of it. Do what I do. Buy the album. Set it aside. And, when you’re ready, listen to it. It will come to you and enrich your life. If it doesn’t, wait for the next Katy Perry album. She’ll release something soon.

Do we have to hear every thought he has? Haven’t G.B.V. released three albums this year? He’s getting as bad as Jack White!
