There are certain things in life we can rely on, and one of these is that Robert Pollard - the relentlessly unglamorous yet unnaturally gifted figure who can hammer out three of four Who-style powerpop humdingers before most of us have even had breakfast - will have another album out before we've even got used to the last one. True to form, 'Of Course You Are', his tenth solo effort under his own name this decade alone, is yet another modest masterpiece replete with earwig melody and spiky lyricism. Here aided and abetted by songwriting foil Nick Mitchell, this record forms proof positive that this well of songs is in absolutely no danger of running dry.
