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.

Stereolab

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.

      Switched On

        Remastered edition of a compilation of Stereolab’s first three singles, first issued in 1992.

        Although Switched On is much more guitar driven than some of their later releases, it still employs the same Krautrock grooves and bubbling analogue synths, and of course Laetitia Sadier’s cooler than cool vocals are ever present.
