The Adventures of the Silver Spaceman’s
Bare Bones Part II: Electric Earth Out Today (stream)
Release Show at Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium on Monday, 12/5
The Adventures of the Silver Spaceman releases its new EP, Bare Bones Part II: Electric Earth, today. Full of spacey, psych-tinged guitars and storytelling lyrics, it features a new lineup for the Brooklyn band that includes members of local acts Haybaby & Lazyeyes, plus a guest appearance from DIIV guitarist Andrew Bailey.
The EP is streaming in full on Soundcloud and is available for purchase via Bandcamp.
The Adventures of the Silver Spaceman is led by songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Zachary James Ellis, who originally launched it as a solo project in 2011. It has since grown into a full band, and Ellis & his various collaborators have released four albums under the moniker. With an emphasis on poetry-driven lyrics and timeless songwriting, the band’s songs capture the spontaneous and mystical elements of art-making and storytelling, creating a vibe that’s as mysterious and otherworldly as their name.
The band will celebrate their new EP with a release show at Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium on Monday (12/5) with Sharkmuffin, What Moon Things, and Sodium Beast — the show is a benefit for Standing Rock, and you can find more info here.
