STEREOLAB: FAB FOUR SUTURE


STEREOLAB Fab Four Suture (Too Pure, out now)

Stereolab have a new album out. It’s called Fab Four Suture. Despite the fact that they are utterly up their own backside when it comes to their sound, and that the lead singer is French (cause and effect? Who knows?), I’ve never been too much into them, which is possibly strange considering my obsession with Broadcast, a band often associated with the Lab.

There is something about their music that I usually find utterly boring. I think it has something to do with the fact that much time is spent fine-tuning the sound and very little time is dedicated to actually developing compositions to fully-fledged songs. Also there is something in the way Laetitia Sadier sings that feels like your little sister singing over pop songs behind you while you’re trying to listen to something on the radio.

Still, they have one of the coolest names in the business and this new album is rather OK I think.
