Pollard & Sprout Get The Simon & Garfunkel Treatment

Guided By Voices

Guided By Voices recently got a little help from the always spot-on Funny Or Die team to help promote their latest single, “Bad Love Is Easy To Do.”  Comedians Rob Corddry and Brian Huskey step into the band’s shoes, performing as the very Simon and Garfunkel-esque “Pollard and Sprout” alongside ex-Vivian Girl Katy Goodman and Mighty Boosh actor Rich Fulcher in the new video.  Got all that straight?   Not quite?  Just watch.

GBV will be in Madison for a much less classic folk duo-inspired set at the Barrymore Theater on June 20 with support from Bobby Bare Jr.  Click here to grab your tickets while you still can!

Jason Isbell will be treating Madison fans to a live performance at the Barrymore on February 7 (tickets here), but music  critics have been treating him to some pretty impressive accolades as he gears up to head to town.

Jason’s latest album, Southeastern, has recently been named #1 on American Songwriter’s list of the 50 Top Albums of 2013!  (Also on the list?  The very talented Patty Griffin, who’s American Kid came in at #2.  She’ll be at the High Noon Saloon on January 29.)

They call the record “a breathtaking document of lyrical honesty and achingly gorgeous melodies.”   Take a listen for yourself below and tell us what you think in the comments section.
