Who Are…Popstrangers

By Annie Zaleski, Contributor

Formed in 2009, Popstrangers started off as a low-profile local Auckland band fueled by a dislike for their day jobs and a passion for playing music. Very quickly, however, the noisy psych-pop trio found its footing: A nationwide band competition landed them a coveted slot at Auckland's 2010 Big Day Out fest, and they released two EPs by the end of 2010. Still, this forward momentum wasn't without its setbacks. A record deal with legendary… more »

Behold the Shoes: A Brief History of Shoegaze

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

No, it's not a great name: "shoegazing." Very few artists who've actually played in that style like the term; Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai has called it "a dumb term made up by clueless... idiots... if someone called us shoegazers, I'd be pretty unhappy." The other leading candidate seems to be "dreampop," which is also not quite satisfactory. But we're stuck with those words, because it's undeniable that there's a certain tendency in rock music, especially British… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Having righted themselves with Capsul, Bailter Space followed up with the equally good Photon EP, blasting off with “Particle Accelerator,” which features Parker’s raging guitar and spat vocals tumbling over Halvorsen and McLachlan’s equally brawling rhythm punch. “Time Machine” aims for an even rougher sound; rarely has the term “grinding guitars” been more appropriate than it is here. “Torch” is quite skeletal for Bailter Space; it’s more like a faster version of Codeine or Spain than anything else. The fragmentary “V.43″ leads into the best track on the disc, the majestic “U.H.F.,” on which jangle and feedback are mixed together to create a quietly anthemic number in the grand tradition of “X” or “Shine.” “Noch Ein Raum Spatzel Bitte” and “Flashback” give the band a chance to further explore massive amp blowouts, with Parker coaxing some truly amazing roars out of his guitar, while the title track closes things out with a taut, energetic romp along the same lines, but with an extra focus and crispness of sound. More than a time killer, Photon shows Bailter Space still possessed of rude, vital health. – Ned Raggett
