best album title
nobody ever talks about Stereolab anymore, why is that?
without a doubt! And i've been listening to dots and loops in the car on the way to work for the last couple of days and it just does'nt grab me like the earlier stuff does.
I love it when they do that krautrocky motorik thing with laetitia's dreamy vocals floating all over the top of it, thats just bliss! Its just a pity they kind of stopped doing that around the ETK period and i've not really heard anything beyond D&L as sometimes i felt they sounded too close to raw sex (the comedy lounge act from french and saunders) which bugged me a little.
But yeah TRNBWA is a stone cold classic and i'll be returning to it
for many years to come.
My favourite Stereolab album too. It grabbed me from the moment I first heard it back in '93. Nothing else they've done has come close to it for atmosphere and experimentalism, in my humble opinion.
I only like Peng!
a bit of a stereolab fixation just recently. 'Transient Random Noise Bursts...' is possibly my favourite album, along with 'Peng!'. I also have quite a soft spot for 'The groop played space age bachelor pad music' (hardly anyone ever mentions this album. Its great)
Haven't heard much of their stuff post ETK apart from 'Chemical Chords' which is also pretty swell. Its maybe not as interesting as their earlier stuff but still an enjoyable album.
We should all endeavour to talk more about Stereolab. They're an incredible band.
Closely followed by the Low Fi EP
You can get a pretty stunning mixtape from Peng and the Switched On 1 & 2 collections.
Mars Audiac Quintet is great.
And from there on it's all downhill.
