Bag Raiders: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 24 2011

Hailing from Sydney, Bag Raiders' Jack Glass and Chris Stracey produce tracks that burst with airy euphoria. Like Australian labelmates the Avalanches and Cut Copy, Bag Raiders lay down music that is tactile, a percolating mélange of blissed-out swells and glamorous crests. It's acid house electro-funk roller-disco synth-pop that's retro without being dated, modern without being analytical. It hits all the intimate piano house-meets- festival-banger marks that make for a blog success, while never seeming overly calculated. Headlining the Popscene vs. Modular Records showcase, Bag Raiders provide an uplifting groove alongside the more jackin' head rush of Muscles, Gloves, and Aaron Axelsen.
