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
Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements (Expanded Edition)

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 and expanded here, sounds just as fresh today.

Stereolab
Mars Audiac Quintet (Expanded Edition)

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 now reissued and expanded.

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. 

Benjamin Schoos feat. Dent May & Laetitia Sadier
All Night Every Night / Je Ne Vois Que Vous

Never too early to start fending off the winter blues, eh? Belgium’s Freaksville label boss and dashing crooner Benjamin Schoos’ new song ‘All Night Every Night’, where are found his first all-English lyrics, is packed with enough sappy sunshine to see you at least as far as Chrimbo. Dent May graces the title song with his presence while Laetitia Sadier features on the flip.

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.

Laetitia Sadier
Dry Fruit

Stereolab queen Laetitia Sadier builds anticipation for a forthcoming full-length with this cassingle release. Dry Fruit is a beautiful piece of smooth melancholia, and comes backed with a remix by CAVE that takes the track deep into new territory. Cassette plays same both sides, released by Drag City.

Laetitia Sadier
Something Shines

Here's a new album from Stereolab vixen Laetitia Sadier’s which was recorded in Switzerland with a man called David who has lots of keyboards. In fact  Its a truly international record with the drummer recording his parts in Paris, the bassist in Valencia and the strings done in St Etienne. Sadier's own parts were overdubbed in London and the triangle on the title track was laid down in Swanage.  The album is full of delicately textured production, twinkling nuances and shifting chords. A relaxing and invigorating record Sadier has carried on along the path of her parent band but brings a warmth and intimacy to her solo recordings. Bound to be popular this one.
