Stereolab

Sound Dust (Expanded Edition)

    While the two years between Dots and Loops and Cobra resulted in stagnation, the two years separating Cobra and Sound-Dust find Stereolab deliberately recharging their creative juices, delving deeper into avant-garde composition and '60s swing pop in equal measures. As the album opens with the minimal "Black Ants in Sound-Dust," it's evident that the group has restructured and pushed forward, even if it means that they're adhering to their time-honored tradition of expanding their trademark sound with new arrangements and influences.

    Remastered from original tapes with bonus disc of out-of-print tracks from the album sessions. Co-released by band’s own label Duophonic UHF Disks and Warp Records.

    Margerine Eclipse (Expanded Edition)

      Stereolab's music is so consistent, and so consistently pretty, that it has become nearly criticism-proof; the band do what they do so completely that it's almost a matter of accepting or rejecting their music whole instead of analyzing it. But while Stereolab's mix of '50s and '60s lounge, vintage electronic music, and Krautrock may have crossed over into easy listening indie pop a few albums ago, they still can't be dismissed easily. Margerine Eclipse, the band's tenth full-length, can sound a bit like a collage of pieces from their nine other albums, but the overall effect is more retrospective than repetitive. It's arguably the most direct work Stereolab have done since Emperor Tomato Ketchup (and at just under 54 minutes, it's one of the shortest of their later albums) and it continues Sound-Dust's trend of gathering the sounds the band explored on their previous work and tweaking them slightly.

            Stereolab's 7 album reissue campaign kicks off with 1993's 'Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements' and 1994's 'Mars Audiac Quintet', reissued via Warp Records and Duophonic UHF Disks, as expanded and re-mastered editions on vinyl and compact disc.

            Each album has been re-mastered from the original 1/2" tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by Tim Gane. Bonus material includes alternate takes, 4 track demos and unreleased mixes.

            STAFF COMMENTS

            Martin says: While this is possibly Stereolab's breakthrough release, it is also one of the most sonically diverse and challenging, switching between extended krautrock jams, edgy and distorted instrumentals, hard driving noise and dreamy pop. Features the utterly enchanting "Pack Yr Romantic Mind" and "Jenny Ondioline".

            Martin says: The more accessible end of their output perfected their assault on space age pop, blending complex and layered lounge experimentation with their trademark kraut influences to gorgeous effect.

            The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music

               ‘The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music’ is an 8-track mini album, released in 1993.

              Often noted as being one of the most influential and original bands of the 90s, Stereolab were formed by Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier in London in 1990 and released 13 studio albums, 15 EPs and numerous singles. Simon Reynolds commented in Rolling Stone that the group’s early records form “an endlessly seductive body of work that sounds always the same, always different.”

              Theirs is a rich, overflowing palette, readily able to blur the gulf between Os Mutantes and the BBC Radiophonic Orchestra; merge Krzysztof Komeda with the Velvet Underground, Francoise Hardy with Neu! and Burt Bacharach with Esquivel. A deluxe blend, in other words, with ingredients plucked assiduously from pop’s coolest outposts: 50’s lounge, Rive Gauche chanson, Brazilian tropicalia, North American art rock, East European film music, Krautrock. hi-fi test recordings, mood music and more. Somehow they distil these apparently incongruent components into an ageless exotica that is all their own.
