Indie Rock Journalism & Boston Spaceships.

A couple press quotes for the Boston Spaceships' latest contribution to the world Zero to 99.

"It is somehow 2009, five years on from the dissolution of lo-fi heroes Guided by Voices and at least 10 since the agreed-upon peak of his powers, and Bob Pollard's making some of the best music of his life. Three albums deep into the Boston Spaceships and the prolific songwriter is on a tear to rival a few of his best-ever runs." - Pitchfork

"When we got an advance copy this summer of the excellent new Boston Spaceships album, Zero To 99 (out next week on GBV Inc.), we were immediately floored by track two, 'How Wrong You Are,' possibly the best song Robert Pollard has recorded since the demise of Guided By Voices."
- Magnet
