Music of the 90s - Stereolab

Artist: Stereolab
Album: Emperor Tomato Ketchup

The Stereolab catalogue is voluminous, at times full of noise, but also containing approaches to the ultimate groove. This album approaches Peng! for consistency. The song, "Tomorrow is already here" also contains a reference to institutions, perhaps unique in popular music with the exception of a notable Beatles lyric.

Muffled, bubbly, spacey and groovy. Echoes of 60s French coolness, informed by the aesthetic appeal of anarcho-futurism. Recommended, needless to say.
