Remember when I confessed that I’d never listened to XTC and everyone pitched several fits? Well get your pitchforks ready (pun intended), because I’ve never heard Stereolab either. The band’s new album, Fab Four Suture is a wonderful collection of songs. Half of the songs were released last year as singles, and half are as-yet-unheard by the general public. The latter half of the album are going to be released as three limited edition vinyl singles. But for now, here’s a peak at the unreleased part of Fab Four Suture.
MP3: Stereolab – Eye of the Volcano
Apparently Spin Magazine listed Stereolab as one of the top 50 most influential pop groups of all time. With songs like this, I can see why. “Eye of the Volcano” is a delightful float through some dreamy vocals. While it might not be the pop masterpiece that I was expecting from such a highly-lauded band, it’s most assuredly a treat for everyone from old Stereolab fans, to newcomers like me.
I was just pointed towards this website that has a bunch of live videos. I suggest taking a peak at the Haley Bonar stuff. She’s talented and cute! How can you resist, guys?
If you haven’t already made your way over to Skatterbrain yet, I’d like to take this time to ask you one thing: “why not?” (Other) Matt posts the best stuff around, these days.
