As part of some of Guided by Voices' most celebrated phases, Tobin Sprout's warmly earnest songwriting served as a clear-headed counterpoint to his bandmate Robert Pollard's wild-eyed tangents about UFOs and fantastical characters. With an extensive solo career made up of sporadically released projects, Sprout delved deeper into his side of that coin, making full albums of the kind of reflective and warm indie rock tunes he got limited airtime with in GBV. With Empty Horses, Sprout turns a new corner.
