Bachelorette, 'Bachelorette' (Drag City)

Critical Mass
Release Date: June 7, 2011
Label: Drag City

by Joe Gross

On her third album as Bachelorette, New Zealand's Annabel Alpers mixes beginnings and endings the same way her music celebrates the frisson of acoustic and electronic. "The future is disquieting," she sings over orbs of sunrise synths on "Grow Old With Me." "The Light Seekers" sounds like an English folk moondance, while "Blanket" and the dance-remix-ready "Polarity" thrive on distant digital echoes. At home with a variety of tonal colors, Alpers is a basement Björk, stacking her multitracked voice until it hits the ceiling.
