Guided By Voices’ Sweating the Plague Tops Today’s Album Announcements

Yeah, so it's their third release of the year. Whaddaya wanna make of it?

Yeah, I know: The announcement of a new Guided By Voices album isn’t exactly stop-the-presses news. Especially when Sweating the Plague will be their third full-length of 2019. But here’s my counterargument: 1) I like Guided by Voices; 2) Their first two releases of the year — Zeppelin Over China and Warp and Woof — were both pretty satisfying, which bodes well; 3) The advance bumpf says this one will be a tight little 12-song set of anthemic rock, which should be a refreshing change of pace; 4) It’s my damn web site and I’ll write about whatever I want. Of course, GBV weren’t the only artist announcing some new tunes. Check out the rest of today’s list below — it includes a ton of Jeff Buckley reissues, another Noel Gallagher EP and plenty more — and don’t forget to head over to the Upcoming Releases page to peep the entire fall sked. For now, enjoy a preview of Sweating the Plague: The first single Heavy Like the World.
