"The Young Machines Remixed," Her Space Holiday

--Alex Slawson & Herman Snell

Marc Bianchi is the one man force behind the beloved dreamy indie-electro pop sounds of Her Space Holiday, a project that combines lush sampling, beautiful synth programming and bitter/sweet lyrical poetry. 2003's The Young Machines saw Bianchi/HSH soften these nuances somewhat from 2001's critically acclaimed Manic Expressive, which caught some fans off guard. Ironically, this works very well in terms of The Young Machines Remixed, a new release of all tracks from the original recording remixed by the most elite in this field. The Album Leaf, Arab Strap, Matmos, Super Furry Animals, Dntel, Boom Bip and Stereolab all rework the template established by Bianchi in such a way as to create a sound that is unique to each of them while maintaining the aesthetic that keep HSH fans coming back for more. An excellent release!
