Mistletone proudly presents the return of New Zealand via New York's Bachelorette, launching her self-titled album. Described variously as a one-woman Animal Collective and a female Syd Barrett, Bachelorette (AKA Annabel Alpers) is set to transport you with her singular brand of psychedelic computer folk pop, comprising expansive, layered loops and radiant multi-tracked harmonies.
The music of Bachelorette is what might happen were you to toss 70s psychedelia, 80s electro-pop, 90s shoegaze and 00s electronica into a blender and turn it to high. A strange, enveloping tangle of synthesised melody and claustrophobic texture built around Annabel's raw and endlessly multi-layered voice, Bachelorette will take you on a sonic journey to a universe sustained by the logic of androids, cities, waveforms and love. Supports are Sydney's own sophisticated lover Donny Benet, continuing his quest to become the most famous disco accordian/jazz bassist of the 21st century, and Melbourne via Berlin's Jasmina Maschina who will open the evening with a culmination of sound, song and ambience, as her experimental electronic folk soundscapes transport you into her beautiful world of sonic adventure, strong emotions, electronics, songs and deep love.
"A swirling mix of folky introspection, driving, Kosmische repetition, and undulating drones. The constant throughout is Kiwi Annabel Alpers beautiful voice, an otherworldly croon thats gospel-like in its devotion." TWO THOUSAND
"Alpers is making music like few others, a one-of-a-kind blend of electronics and folk lyricism" DRUM MEDIA
"Few exponents of electronic pop create albums as original and enduring as (Bachelorette) a refinement of her already prodigious talent for vocal harmonies over infatuating synth hooks" - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
