Marc Bianchi began the electronic-based space pop project Her Space Holiday mostly as a bedroom endeavor in 1996, after departing the hardcore scene. (He'd played in bands like Indian Summer and Calm.) Releases during that formative period included the Audio Astronomy 12", Astronauts Are Sleeping, and the Something Blue EP. Then Her Space Holiday moved to Tiger Style for the 2000 full-length Home Is Where You Hang Yourself, and the well-received effort led to touring and remix offers. After a 2001 move from San Francisco to Austin, TX, Bianchi and his girlfriend/collaborator Keely issued the Manic Expressive LP, and followed that with 2003's Young Machines (Mush). The Young Machines remix project appeared soon after, with work from notables like Matmos, Super Furry Animals, and Stereolab. Two new discs were in the works for 2005; the Let's Get Quiet, Vol. 1 EP emerged in May, and a full-length album, Past Presents the Future, followed a few months later. The second Let's Get Quiet EP arrived in 2007. Released in 2008, XOXO, Panda and the New Kid Revival featured more live instrumentation and hooky pop songs.
