I put a bunch of new stuff onto my iTunes today, about time...I have been really scrambling to keep up with reviews lately, but the best of the bunch so far is a new album from Bailterspace, called Strobosphere. Bailterspace, as you may know, was founded by the Gordon's Alister Parker and the Clean's Hamish Kilgour in the late 1980s. The band was, from the beginning louder and more distorted than the typical run of NZ pop. Melody Maker once called them "the Sonic Youth of the Southern Hemisphere." Anyway, they've all been doing other things and let a decade plus slip by, but Strobosphere shows no signs of senescence at all.
Here is "No Sense" which appears to be the single, or at least the free giveaway.
The record's been out for about a month on Fire Records.
