Bachelorette - Blanket by Souterrain Transmissions published on 2011/03/08 10:30:19 +0000 BACHELORETTE IS THE SOLO RECORDING AND LIVE PERFORMING PROJECT OF ANNABEL ALPERS. Annabel is from New Zealand but currently based on the east coast of the USA. Mixed by Nicholas Vernhes at Rare Book Room (Animal Collective, Beach House) in Brooklyn, the twelve tracks on her upcoming self-titled album are built on minimal synth grooves, strummed guitar, innocent whistles wondering through cold hallways, and occasional accompaniment on drums. But all are guided by Bachelorette’s ethereal lead vocal. This album’s greatest triumph is that its abundant pop melodies displace any heroic presumption associated with such an ambitious journey. Whether wandering through your labyrinthine, echoing consciousness or embarking on an interstellar marathon, you’ll want to sing along.
