By 1994’s B.E.I.P. EP, New Zealand’s Bailter Space had earned from critics and fans a “shoegaze” description, and rightfully so. On the EP’s opener, “X,” for instance, walls of guitars loom up, enveloping the listener in crashing rhythms and shifting textures. The drone-y “Robot World” creates a similar effect, with the vocals floating through sheets of amplified noise. Fans of My Bloody Valentine, Ride, and other such bands would do well to check this out.
