Boston Spaceships was a rock band featuring Robert Pollard and Chris Slusarenko of Guided By Voices, and John Moen of The Decemberists and Perhapst. The name of the band came from a nickname Pollard gave to the Boston cream donut from Krispy Kreme, which is Pollard's favorite donut. The band released several albums before disbanding in 2011 with their final album Let it Beard. The band released their second album The Planets are Blasted in February 2009. The album featured guest appearances by Greg Demos GBV 199099, Gary Jarman The Cribs and Chris Funk The Decemberists. Album 2009 14 Songs. Boston Spaceships is another of his pick-up groups that features guitarist-bassist Chris Slusarenko and one-time Elliot Smith drummer John Moen. Together, they hash out songs with a proud, unrefined aggression that never admits that Pollard himself is pushing fifty years old. This is still kid music and Pollard indulges his stream-of-consciousness brain at every turn. And The Planets Are Blasted is that rare Pollard project that leaves you wanting more - the 14 songs here each sound complete and fully realized, and at under 35 minutes, this set doesn't run out of ideas before it draws to a close. Pollard sings up a storm, too. So maybe Robert Pollard didn't need a different work ethic - he just needed a good band in his corner, and Boston Spaceships is helping to reestablish him as one of the most satisfying talents in indie rock. Track Listing. It's clear the Boston Spaceships is Pollard's new band, not just another project. It's clearer still, after a couple records in less than six months' time, that the man's pretty okay with that. As he should be. Picking up where that record let off, The Planets Are Blasted most often than not just rips, opting for a slurry Zeppelin-y stomp even at the expense of some of its predecessor's catchiness. To my ears, Pollard hasn't put out a good ol' drinking record like this one in forever: heady, quick to inspire the raising of glasses, with complexities that linger far after the initial buzz wears off. Planets Are Blasted. Boston Spaceships. Released: Feb 2009. Label: GBV Inc. Robert Pollard once again proves he's the most prolific songwriter in the history of indie rock. Planets Are Blasted comes just five months after Boston Spaceships' debut, Brown Submarine. Despite the short turnaround time, the album sounds more sculpted than its predecessor.
