Big Dipper “Crashes on the Platinum Planet”

(Almost Ready) You can’t know every band, and I have to admit I never really get a grip on what Big Dipper were all about, knowing a few songs from college radio, but never buying their records. Listening to this new album of high sheen, flawless ethereal power pop doesn’t exactly make me regret this path, but I guarantee that I’ll pick up “Crap” next time I see it in a used bin – I always liked that cover. All the songs here are pretty good, but an ode to a guitar named Desire and an ode to cancer, and an ode to the father of the heroine of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang are all stellar.
