Her Space Holiday The Young Machines
- Words: Tony Ware
- Label: Mush
With his third proper full-length (his first for Mush), Her Space Holiday composer Marc Bianchi has gone from charmingly earnest to brutally honest. On several tracks Bianchi comes across as pretty damn twee'd off, as vindictive as a man who breathily emotes over spacey synth 'n' sample symphonics can be. The string-swept sleepy grooves-several chirping stutters more popular in the wake of the Postal Service debut-are not so far removed from previous material as to render the album unrecognizable, but the bed sheets in which Bianchi tosses have turned noticeably frigid. The Young Machines is a break-up but not breakdown record, a captivating coping mechanism for those who can appreciate dream-pop mope-hop.
