Tobin Sprout/DTCV

When: Wed., April 26, 8:30 p.m. 2017

Tobin Sprout, previously a member of Dayton band Guided By Voices, has had a quietly prolific career as both a visual artist and a musician. His solo music bears resemblance to vintage Guided By Voices tracks — it’s got the same lo-fi qualities and often stumbles or skips around between melodies in the middle of a song. His newest album, The Universe And Me, plays upon these sensibilities and focuses on themes of childhood and maturity. Songs like “Honor Guard” and “Future Boy Today/Man Tomorrow” have the indie-pop qualities of a Guided By Voices track, but others like “When I Was A Boy” and “I Fall You Fall” operate more like wistful piano ballad. Sprout has played shows before, but this is the first time he’s played a full US slate. DTCV, which features another former Guided By Voices member, will open the show. (Cook)
