Brendan Chamberlain-Simon lives his life on Mars time. No, really — for the past 5 years, he has been driving the Curiosity Rover across the Martian surface, and is currently part of NASA’s team flying the first-ever helicopter on Mars. On his debut album as Proud Father, appropriately titled The View of Earth From Mars, Chamberlain-Simon draws from his unique experience to deliver insight from the vantage point of a man on Mars looking back at Earth. With tracks hailed by Rolling Stone as “a meticulous and mesmerizing slice of interstellar funk” and “early Smashing Pumpkins produced by Apollo-era Brian Eno,” The View of Earth From Mars is a sprawling concept album about the first man to go to Mars that approaches cosmic-looking wonder and inward-looking reflection in equal measure.
