Bailterspace Announce New LP, Premiere New Track

This year's resurgence of the Flying Nun aesthetic, by both young ramshackle bands and Flying Nun itself, has resulted in a side effect besides great new jangly post-punk and great reissues of jangly post-punk. That side effect: great new albums by old New Zealand bands once associated with their country's most beloved label. Bailterspace, a supergroup of sorts borne out of The Gordons, put out a series of driving, dissonant records in the late '80s and through the '90s before taking the '00s off. But they're back-- and following last year's Strobosphere, their first album since 1999, they're at it again. They've announced a brand new LP, Trinine, and shared its lead single, "Films Of You." The track is an exciting update of the drone-aware, semi-melodic post-punk sound they cultivated years ago, influenced by American bands like Sonic Youth as well as their Kiwi brethren like The Dead C or The JPS Experience. Somehow vicious and slackerish simultaneously, "Films Of You" presents an old-ish band evoking an old-ish aesthetic while sounding refreshingly new.

Trinine is out October 1 on Fire Records.
