Dots and Loops (Expanded Edition)

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. 

Margerine Eclipse (Expanded Edition)

Have you not had enough Stereolab this year? Fresh from their box ticking international touring exploits the band now re-issue their 8th album Margerine Eclipse with a bonus disc of rare tracks. The album was a tribute to vocalist Mary Hansen who had been killed the previous year in a cycling accident. Though they soldier on with intent, it has to be said that the band's harmonies have never been the same since Hansen departed both the band and earth. Truly a shocking loss.      

Sound-Dust (Expanded Edition)

Fresh from going through the motions at a venue near you this year, Stereolab have re-issued their seventh studio album Sound-Dust with a host of bonus tracks. This was the last album to feature Mary Hansen and it was recorded in Chicago with Jim O'Rourke and John McEntire at the helm. Nothing to Do with Me contains lyrics taken from Chris Morris sketches which is something for your ear to hold onto as you wade through the experimental kraut rock and tropicalia-influenced songs. 

Emperor Tomato Ketchup (Expanded Edition)

'Emperor Tomato Ketchup' is often held up as the crowning achievement 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. 

Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night (Expanded Edition)

'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.

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.

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.

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
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.

Cavern of Anti-Matter
void beats/invocation trex

Cavern of Anti-Matter is a new group led by Tim Gane of Stereolab! void beats / invocation trex has the classic gorgeous motorik vibe that Stereolab alumni do so well, sucking you into its world. Guest appearances from Bradford Cox of Deerhunter and Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3: quite a line-up eh? CD or triple LP on Duophonic.
