Tobin Sprout - Moonflower Plastic

I imagine it would be hard to stand out if you're in a band with Robert Pollard. I mean, no one gives a fuck about Mitch Mitchell, or the millions of other members that have come and gone throughout the years, except for Tobin Sprout.

His two to three songs per album from GBV's golden age are standouts on albums full of standouts.

Moonflower Plastic is his first post-Guided By Voices album, and it is also his best record. Listen to "Beast of Souls" and "All Used Up." These are classic songs. I can't even imagine how awesome Do the Collapse would have been with a couple of these nuggets.
