The Friday Fire Track: ESP Ohio – “Royal Cyclopean”

esp-ohio-pic
If you are a Robert Pollard fan then your mind blew when you heard the news about ESP Ohio. The new Pollard project reunites him with guitarist Doug Gillard (Nada Surf, Guided By Voices) which has historically yielded some great indie pop moments. ESP Ohio also adds current GBV bassist Mark Shue (Beech Creeps) and drummer Travis Harrison (Lifeguards producer) to round out the party.

The full length, Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean, is due out November 18th via Rockathon Records which is just around the corner. That means it is time to start cranking this project up with today’s Friday Fire Track, “Royal Cyclopean.”

I will warn you right away that the opening horns (yes horns) in this song will permanently lock into your head. You also get the clever wordplay from Pollard like “At the starting point / of the royal cyclopean / is the Maltese custard / is the Chinese mustard.” Really? What more could you want for your Friday!

“Royal Cyclopean” is big pop, grinding rock and fun for all the kids in the club. Play it now and play it loud!
