To promote their 36th album, ‘Tremblers and Goggles by Rank’, Midwestern indie rock veterans Guided By Voices have released a gorgeously melodic single titled ‘Unproductive Funk’. The title is highly ironic for a band who are releasing their tenth studio album in three-and-a-half years. The track retains the melody of the songs on the band’s …
