Avant-pop weirdos Stereolab influenced pretty much everyone who's ever made a band since. An exaggeration, maybe, but without them we wouldn't have a Deerhunter, nor an Animal Collective -- would we have any pranksters at all? A bananas initiative f...read more »

Stereolab
Peng!

Peng! Was the debut album by Stereolab. It was originally released in 1992. It featured all the hallmarks of their sound which was driven by rhythm guitar, vintage keyboards, a motorik beat and Laetitia Sadier’s part-Nico-part-ethereal vocals. They were influenced as much by the sunshine pop of The Free Design as the were the experimental rock of Can. This is good place to start with the ‘lab, as well as being a cracker, you can see how their sound progresses from here, album by album.

Stereolab
The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music

Stereolab followed their 1992 debut album, Peng!, with The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, a mini album in 1993. The title strangely seems to give a name to the music Stereolab played. Their influences came from far and wide, but were always cool and occasionally a little bit obscure - Os Mutantes, Esquivel, Neu! Francoise Hardy, Velvet Underground. Clear vinyl reissue on Too Pure.

Stereolab
Aluminum Tunes

This is the third in the series of three Stereolab singles compilations that have now been re-issued on clear vinyl LPs. It covers the years 1995-1998 and rounds up all the EPs and split singles and compilations the band produced. They were very prolific indeed and also ahead of the time. Everyone does kraut-pop now but Stereolab were one of the main innovators during the first wave of bands influenced by your classic Germans.

Stereolab
Refried Ectoplasm (Switched On Vol. 2)

2LP clear vinyl re-press of this compilation of early singles and rarities from the now pretty legendary kraut poppers. The compilation charts the bands growth in their early years and contains some of their classic recordings such 'French Disko' 'John Cage Bubblegum' and 'La Boob Oscillator'. Ha! I said 'boob'.

Stereolab
Switched On Volumes 1-3

Stereolab fans this is your CD treasure trove. You get the singles and rarities compilations Switched On, Refried Ectoplasm [Switched On Volume 2], and Aluminum Tunes [Switched On Volume 3] all compiled onto a 4CD anthology on reverse board clam shell box with disks in individual card wallets and insert. An absolute mountain of kraut/pop goodness.

Modern Cosmology
Summer Long

Astonishingly this collaboration between Stereolab chanteuse Letitia Sadier and Brazilian band Mombojo has almost exactly the same name as the title of the recent Jane Weaver album. I mean, it’s unbelievable isn’t it? How does that happen?  Anyway this should be a nice small album of  bossa-nova, pop, and psychedelia for summer.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
In Fabric

Tim Gane is a machine! Actually, he just owns some machines. And they've served him well, in recent years: the kosmische bleat of Cavern of Anti-Matter has given him a new lease of musical life and the deeply rhythmic jams have kept us coming back for more. Here's a 7" showcasing some of the music he's made for Peter Strickland's new movie In Fabric.

Cavern Of Anti-Matter
Hormone Lemonade

Tim Gane's Cavern Of Anti-Matter return with their third studio album continuing their journey into the bowels of kraut rock by way of modular synths and homemade drum machines. Hormone Lemonade still has the loose improvised feel that will be familiar to those in awe of their previous offerings.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
I'm The Unknown

Cavern of Anti-Matter is the project of Stereolab’s Tim Gane, working with another ‘lab veteran and synth man Holger Zapf. The mere involvement of Stereolab alumni is pretty much a clincher already, but knowing that I’m The Unknown finds the outfit playing around with the vibes of library music makes them irresistible. Plus two nice outtakes from their recent album. 12” on Duophonic.

Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble
Find Me Finding You

New sounds from a new outfit of Laetitia Sadier, the queen of Stereolab. This debut album of the Source Ensemble features some familiar collaborators, as well as guest spots from the likes of Rob Mazurek and Alexis Taylor. The smoothly groovy flavour of all Sadier’s work is still gorgeously present here on Find Me Finding You. Released by Drag City.

Stereolab
Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements

Back in the early 1990s, when grunge and britpop dominated rock music, Stereolab were doing something very different indeed. Combining motorik drone-rock a la Neu and avant-garde radicalism with elements of slick space-age exotica and retro Euro-pop, this their sprawling 1993 opus reissued here on double vinyl, sounds just as fresh today.

Stereolab
Wow & Flutter

Wow And Flutter is a spin-off EP from 1994’s Mars Audiac Quintet album, featuring two songs from that album (but in alternate versions!) and two others that were exclusive to this release. One of those tracks is called ‘Nihilist Assault Group, Pts. 3-5’ (excellent tilting), and it is by early Stereolab, so, y’know, it’s great.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
Blood Drums

When Tim Gane of Stereolab makes a new album and only issues 500 vinyl copies of it on a small Berlin-based label you can imagine that there would be a fair few unhappy people that missed out. Worry no more. Blood Drums, the debut album by Tim Gane’s post-Stereolab band Cavern Of Anti-Matter is now reissued his own Duophonic label. As with Stereolab, Gane showcases his love of vintage analogue instruments to create a one-off experiment that was so good it turned into a full time band.

Stereolab
Cybele's Reverie

One of the very best tracks from Stereolab’s high-grade 1996 album Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Cybele’s Reverie was released as a single, and here is a sneakily retained promo of said single. One of the album’s poppier numbers, it appears here with four other tracks. Rare, collectable, and I think we only have one...

Stereolab
Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The MIlky Night

'Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night' is one of Stereolab's most collaborative releases ever, featuring members of a variety of other kindred spirit post-rock/experimental acts, from Tortoise to Jim O'Rourke.  It's being reissued by 1972 Records, putting Stereolab's most controversial record on display once again. Recommended for those who want to hear what rock critics of the late 1990s hated and what Stereolab fans barely blinked an eye at: weird, often kinda twee, occasionally jazzy, always Stereolab.   Tracks: Fuses People Do It All The Time The Free Design Blips Drip and Strips Italian hoes Continuum Infinity Girl The Spiracles Op Hop Detonation Puncture in the Radax Permutation Velvet Water Blue Milk  Caleidoscopi Gaze Strobo Acceleration The Emergency Kisses Come and Play in the Milky Night Escape Pod

Switched On

Way early (1992) compilation release of even earlier Stereolab material: in fact, this is the very earliest Stereolab material there is. Switched On compiles the Super 45 EP, the Super-Electric EP, and the Stunning Debut Album 7”, and for all those rarities this is a pretty handsome price. Man, what a great band.

Stereolab
Dots and Loops

Considered by many to be one of Stereolab's finest studio recordings, 1997's Dots and Loops is reissued on vinyl as a double LP. The follow-up to critically-lauded 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', this album sees the band take another step away from their earlier minimalist Velvet Underground / Kraut Rock-influenced durge vibe, and edge closer to Europop. It was also the penultimate album to feature Mary Hansen on backing vocals, who was tragically killed in a road accident in 2002.

Stereolab
Emperor Tomato Ketchup

'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' is often held up as the crowning achivement of post-rock/psychedelic outfit Stereloab, fronted by the bizarre, left-field songwriting of Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane. On 'Emperor Tomato Ketchup', the band's affection for pop music and for newer strands of experimental rock intersect, making for a record both accessible and ambitious than the three noise pop records that preceded it.     Tracks: Metronomic Underground Cybele's Reverie Percolator Les Yper-Sound Spark Plug OLV 26 The Noise of Carpet Tomorrow Is Already Here Emperor Tomato Ketchup Monstre Sacre Motoroller Scalatron Slow Fast Hazel Anonymous Collective

Mars Audiac Quintet

Krautrock mixed with wannabe futurist moog music, 'Mars Audiac Quintet' lives up to its name and ambitions. Stereolab followed up their swirly and softer, less noisy 'Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements' with this record, and their tender leaning towards pop music remains. The record is getting a reissue along with its bizarre siblings, younger and older, from 1972 Records.
