  Stereolab – Music at Last.fm
Stereolab is a UK-based band whose style, mixing 1950s-1960s pop and lounge music with the "motorik" beat of krautrock, was one of the first to which the term "post-rock" was applied.
Stereolab is also notable for founding their own record label, Duophonic Records, with a grant from UK charity The Prince's Trust.
Hansen's distinctive backing vocals became an important aspect of the Stereolab sound, and she remained a regular feature of the line-up until her death in a cycling accident on December 9, 2002.

  Stereolab
Stereolab frontwoman Laetitia Sadier dedicated the song "Interlock" to "all of the people with wet feet" at Tuesday night's sold-out performance at the Music Box in Hollywood.
Amid a din of unbridled artistry and unrelenting noise, the musical anarchy of Stereolab's live performance offered a night of avant-garde escapism with one meddlesome hitch: The path of escape was never quite clear, and the destination never came into focus.
Unfortunately, it proved to be too little, too late as Stereolab's visit to Los Angeles was marked by too much experimentation and not enough of the finely crafted artistry that has defined the band's history as true innovators of alternative music.

Stereolab are known for taking elements of the past and transmutating them into something fresh, futuristic and utterly indescribable.
Stereolab's vast musical output is full of experiments, with varying degrees of success, but Emperor Tomato Ketchup is the place where they've made everything work.

To all intents and purposes, Stereolab continue to inhabit some hermetic parallel universe forever redolent with the innocent-yet-glamorous promise of space age futurism and timeless radical chic; their essential fluorescence blissfully unsullied by the dreary spreadsheet certainties of the modern music industry.
With an unquenchable appetite for touring, Stereolab were already eyeing the globe and, on the back of one such EP - The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music EP - signed to Elektra/Warner Bros for worldwide releases in 1993.
The album was proof positive of Stereolab's redoubtable staying power - something borne out later in the year when the band signed a new worldwide licensing deal for their Duophonic imprint with Too Pure/Beggars Banquet.

 Stereolab Album Reviews
In retrospect, Stereolab was one of the past decade’s more influential, and yes, best alternative bands (by “alternative bands” I mean the kind that you never hear on the radio), but I’ve got to admit that I’m slightly less satisfied by the band’s current direction.
Fortunately, Stereolab remain one of the most aurally pleasing bands around, so the ultimate end result of the band’s creative tinkering with their electronic toys is only slightly less alluring than their very best work.
Surprisingly, this is Stereolab's most buoyant, upbeat pop album in some time, as the band wisely decided to celebrate life rather than wallow in the depression that had enveloped them after Mary's death.

 Music: The question of Stereolab (Seattle Weekly)
Stereolab's music isn't dead, however, nor is it boring, pretentious, stale, lackadaisical, or any of the other expletives hurled by critics.
STEREOLAB HAVE FLATTENED out and rendered meaningless a wider array of influences (krautrock, French pop, easy listening, post-Pet Sounds orchestral pop, Marxist ideology, John Cage's theories of sound organization) than any other band in history, and they deserve credit, because that really is some kind of achievement.
I just think Stereolab is bad at it: joyless, uncompelling, and not nearly as smart or clever as they think they are, like a kid who uses a lot of big words without knowing quite what they mean.

"Stereolab" are a British-based band whose style, mixing 1950s-1960s pop and lounge music with the "motorik" beat of krautrock, was one of the first to which the term "post-rock" was applied.
Stereolab are also notable for founding their own record label, Duophonic Records, with a grant from UK charity The Prince's Trust.
Stereolab earned a minor place in the Britpop movement, with their sound proving influential to bands like Blur: occasional keyboard-driven b-sides and singer Damon Albarn's love of retro keyboards showed the influence, and in recognition Lætitia Sadier was invited to provide vocals on To The End from Blur's ''Parklife'' album.

 Stereolab
Well, that, as you all probably know already, is the story of Stereolab, a complex, malleable, constantly evolving group who helped bring an affection for analog recording technology and an appreciation for fringe styles like Krautrock, bossa nova, tropicalia, film music, space age bachelor pad lounge, and lushly orchestrated pop back towards the mainstream.
The album is full of lilting melodies which bounce through a clean, soap bubble wonderland of lazy horns, multiple organs, tropical percussion, harpsichord, playful guitars, sound effects, and lots more.
The world's most interesting easy listening band continues to evolve and their musical adventures are a pleasure to listen to.

If Stereolab's charisma did not lay claim to the reverence garnered from their fans, the power must have partially come from the sounds emanating from the group's cache of analog relics and digital gadgets barricading their stage.

 Margerine Eclipse by Stereolab
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.
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.
Margerine Eclipse can't really be called a return to form since Stereolab didn't really deviate from the form to begin with, but it still offers a reinvigorated sound that rewards the patience of fans who have stuck with the band this long.

Stereolab were not the first and were not the only ones, but somehow they came to represent a nostalgic take on Sixties pop music that employed electronic rhythms and arrangements.
Stereolab probably reached their zenith with the singles of John Cage Bubblegum (1993) and Jenny Ondioline (1993), that inspired the stylistic tour de force of Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements (1993).

That the great thing about Stereolab's music for him was that there was just so much of it that he felt under absolutely no pressure to rush out and buy a new album because there would always be something he hadn't got anyway.
Fab Four Suture is Stereolab's 18th album - if you include compilations, as Fab Four Suture is. That is without mentioning the numerous EP and single releases the band has put out over the years.
Stereolab have always been clever lyricists, never ones to miss a trick in hiding a political message in seemingly simplistic and sugar-coated tunes.

 Stereolab - Margarine Eclipse : album review
Stereolab have never been the most fashionable band in the world.
The typically eccentrically-titled Margarine Eclipse is Stereolab's first album since that tragedy - although it's not a fully fledged tribute per se, the spirit of Hanson pervades the album, with the most obvious nod being on Feel And Triple, with its sad backing vocals of, "Goodbye Mary".
Stereolab are never going to swing off into a new direction, and Margarine Eclipse is a prime example of this.

Led by Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier, Stereolab either legitimized forms of music that were on the fringe of rock, or brought attention to strands of pop music -- bossa nova, lounge-pop, movie soundtracks -- that were traditionally banished from the rock lineage.
Throughout it all, Stereolab relied heavily on forgotten methods of recording, whether it was analog synthesizers and electronics or a fondness for hi-fi test records, without ever sinking to the level of kitsch.

The formation of Stereolab in the early '90s saw the gathering of musicians from accomplished but largely unknown rock bands.
Th' Faith Healers, McCarthy, and the Chills were all adept at mining from the rich earth of dance, psychedelia, funk and minimalism, but it was Stereolab that were able to break through with a loyal audience and maintain a major-label contract.
Stereolab are renowned for Sadier's politically leftist lyrics, but vocals often buried in the swirl of pulsing bass, organs, and heavy percussion are hard to decipher.

We detected the beginning of a slump when we listened to 1999's Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night, and 2000's mini-LP First of the Microbe Hunters seemed to support the theory that our favorite group of multi-accented Europeans was about to collapse under the weight of their influences.
