Polvo: Beggar’s Bowl

90s indie noise rock band POLVO is back after a farewell tour in 1998, having re-signed to Merge Records and released a new album ‘In Prism’ on 9/8/09. Here are some comments from the Merge site that sum it up best:

In Prism is the best Polvo record even before you get to the majestic “A Link in the Chain,” serene and tempestuous like few other things you’ll hear. The album was recorded with Brian Paulson, and Polvo has never sounded better. Polvo spent 1990–98 giving voice to a chorus of discrete rock & roll ideas that really hadn’t been heard before. While there was nothing wrong before, it’s now so much more right—perhaps because after ten years, after other bands and their tours and records and worries (if they had any), none of the peripheral stuff matters anymore. — Mike Wolf, NYC, 6/09
