As It Is on Earth

Last time we heard from this jumpy glam outfit, on 2001's The Hogyssey, it seemed weird Spacehog were even still around; by then, singer Royston Langdon was mostly famous for dating Liv Tyler. Turns out the Hog picked a great decade-plus to take off; their loopy, Bowie-meets-Queen fist pump ( "Gluttony"), chill ballads ("Cool Water") and really long opening songs (seven minutes of trippy "Deceit") sound both kinda classic and really rockin' next to the Lumineers at one end and Animal Collective on the other. And they know it's been awhile: "Oh, Dinosaur" croons about missing agents and kids who ignore their dad. Someone find Major Tom the remote.
