New Killers – “Spaceman”

Along with a pair of plumage pads, Brandon Feathers and his band of hairy Killers unveiled this one for a nationally televised audience on SNL a few weeks ago. Like “Human,” the high energy synth anthem sounded better slightly stripped at 30 Rock than in the studio, but chalk that up to the band’s tendency toward manufactured Importance via one-arrangement-trick-too-many. Still very Oh-Oh-Oh-able though, and loads better than “Losing Touch.”

Check “Neon Tiger” for the complete Day & Age pre-release sample set. The album’s out 11/25 via Island. Pre-order it now on iTunes and get instant “Losing Touch” MP3, which I guess is supposed to be incentive.
