Welcome Back! Big Dipper

Just a few years ago, Merge Records ran a 3-disc retrospective on the career of Big Dipper…Boston’s nerdy power-poppers.  Inspired by the reception, the band went back into the studio to record Big Dipper Crashes on the Platinum Planet.  It’s filled with their trademark jangling cum twangy guitars and a bit of nerdom in the lyrical content.  You just don’t get better than bands like this, at least if you’re asking me. Oh, and if you needed further proof of their excellence, they’ve got the full support of Robert Pollard…and that guy is a pretty big deal.
