Big Dipper are still the underdogs you want to root for, but they are still cranking out riffs and rattling off sweet harmonies that would make bigger bands blush. This album celebrates the very creation of music both thematically and in the unbridled zeal of its sound. They use these sounds to pay tribute to friends, to create their own sonic worlds, to wonder over inspiration and creation even as they seem to both inspire and create effortlessly. 22 years is a long time to way for another record from a band, but Crashes on the Platinum Planet makes up for it in spades

Songs start at USD . 9. On their first album in 22 years, these Boston heroes show the passage of time has had no diluting effects on their off-kilter indie rock and offbeat humor. With the gleaming power pop of Robert Pollard, they not only salute the Guided by Voices leader who carried the torch for ramshackle rock in Big Dipper’s absence, they throw shade at Paul McCartney in the process. And amid the tightly wound jangle of New Machine, they cheekily contemplate a world that’s become obsessed with technology. Crashes On the Platinum Planet Big Dipper.

And God said, 'Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear,' and it was so. And God called the dry land 'earth,' and the gathering together of the waters called He 'seas,' and God saw that it was good. And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas – and God bless all of you, all of you on the good Earth.
