New Zealand-based musician Annabel Alpers, who has been performing under the moniker of Bachelorette since 2004, released her self-titled album on Drag City in May of 2011 and is about to embark on a tour opening for the Magnetic Fields this month. The album is a synth-heavy, melodic and layered work that reminds me very much of Broadcast--and not only for Alpers' similarity to the late Trish Keenan's vocals, but the aesthetic of the two bands is very much the same. Psychedelic, colorful, ethereal--detailed yet minimilist. Yes, I am digging Bachelorette very much.
Though she won't be opening for Magnetic Fields when they play Beacon Theater in April, those of us in New York City are in luck, as Bachelorette will headline her own show at Cameo Gallery this Sunday (3/4)! Tickets are on sale right now for $10, so be sure to grab one while you still can.
