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.

- Mars Audiac Quintet by Stereolab
8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 25th October 2014
Mars Audiac Qunitet sees Stereolab mixing their familiar drone of retro analogue keyboards with krautrock influences, the sound of 60s soft-pop band The Free Design and a touch of Esquivel. “Wow and Flutter” and “Ping Pong” were the two singles lifted from this album, the former being fairly typical of Stereolab’s sound, the latter being a more bright, poppy affair, which I seem to remember may have even threatened the top 40 (though I could be wrong!) These two tracks are the most accessible on what is one of their best from their early-mid 90s creative peak.
