Grain Sparrow Operate Spaceship Earth Properly is a love letter to two modes of creative expression: first, exultant, moat-draining, troll-dancing, riff-exploding, sheer mountainside rock & roll (or redux & roll), and second, science fiction. It is the sound of S.S. Big Blood departing this earth and climbing with bravery, abandon, and no maps that I know of, out into the obscured cosmos. The music we hear is only a transmission pinged back home. The sailors have long since vanished. Favorite track: Queen Day.
