Back in 1995, Spacehog—four dudes from England who formed a band in New York City—landed on the rock moonscape with “In the Meantime,” one of the greatest alt-rock singularities of the post-Cobain radio universe.
Bathed in glammy goodness and sleek ’70s swagger, “In the Meantime” set the tone for Spacehog’s debut album, Resident Alien, which contained much more of the same. Along with the band’s sophomore release The Chinese Album, Spacehog crafted one of the most underrated discographies of the end of the last century.
They haven’t made an album since 2001’s The Hogyssey, and after a long hiatus and a handful of side projects, the group has returned with their fourth album As It Is On Earth, which will be released on April 16. In reuniting with producer Bryce Goggin (who helmed their ’90s output), the band has recreated the same kind of star-kissed energy that they brought on their debut.
