Voyager One, The Pink Snowflakes and Big Sky

With sparse melodies and a shit-ton of production effects, Voyager One draws the line between British post-punk and late-model shoegazing drug rock. Instrumental lines are repeated to the point of trance, while Peter Marchese's vocals, when not dripping with echo, are reminiscent of early '80s New Romantic balladeers. It's clearly an affectation, though, since the two guys in Voyager One hail from Seattle, and the colossal sound of Afterhours in the Afterlife comes from the duo overdubbing the shit out each other. Live, they'll have a few extra hands on deck, and a projectionist as well, which should take some attention off the fact that Voyager One's default setting is to lock into a two-bar groove and repeat for five minutes. They've got some great production ideas, though, so if they could tone down the bombast and get more minimal and abstract, or if they muster up some stronger songs, this satellite could really take off.
