When I was a kid and didn't understand how outer space worked, I used to wonder why once astronauts were finished chatting with aliens, they didn't just take off their space suits and jump back down to earth. Postiljonen's “When All The Wild Things Die” has the same level of enchanting, heavenly immediacy, with layers of spacedust-laced synths dancing across a breathy human expanse. It's always nice to hear pop songs that point the wonder we usually reserve for the stars back inward, because even those space toilets are still a mystery to me. The song is a previously unreleased cut from the Skyer sessions, their debut album out now on Best Fit/Hybris.
