America has certainly embraced the idea of "Change" in 2009. Robert Pollard, however, has not -- and we can't thank him enough!

"Red Cross Vegas Night" (download below), one of the best track off his just-released new solo album, The Crawling Distance, finds the former Guided by Voices frontman standing by the alt-pop sound he's honed over his 25 years in the music biz: rock songs with gritty guitars, anthemic choruses, and Pollard's low groan.

Download the tune below. Then leave your thoughts in the comments section.
