Guided by Voices inspired dozens of slavish imitators, pale and otherwise. I like to think Capstan Shaft's Dean Well's is one of the more genuine and well intentioned proteges of that ever growing cadre. Environ Maiden is just one representative example of over a dozen digital compendiums of Well's handiwork, primarily spanning 2004-11. The man in question skews heavily to GBV's lo-fi aesthetic, circa Bee Thousand...albeit dispensing not as much charm, but he comes close on "Oil From Greenland" and "Elected Head of Her Anarchist Group." Wells possesses a timbre closer to Tobin Sprout than Robert Pollard, with the songwriting acumen of the latter.
deep trove. Full track list is to your right.
