Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On their 12th release, art-pop act Stereolab float deeper into the post-rock atmosphere. They still draw from Ennio Morricone and Henry Mancini when creating their own fantasy soundtracks, but Sound-Dust lacks the dynamic interplay that invigorated Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night. The disc is all easy-listening lounge that's almost too gentle on the ears. There are no urgent sonic experiments, and only three tracks really spark to life: "Spacemoth," "Captain Easychord," and the Kubrick-inspired "Gus and the Mynah Bird." "Easychord" is the catchiest song on the album, containing the CD's most ebullient melody-emitting, warped, country-twanged notes. Beyond that, Stereolab fans should prepare for a very sedate, mature affair. --Jennifer Maerz

Review

Ever since Mars Audiac Quintet and Emperor Tomato Ketchup, the rich production on Stereolab's recordings has belied the fact that, in live performance, the band unveils their identity as minimalists whose songs, stripped of strings, brass and vibraphones, are haiku-like in their economical usage of voice, percussion, organ and guitar. In the hands of Tim Gane, that last instrument becomes a tool used to reduce the myriad genres the group has touched (Krautrock, bossa nova, country) to their essential structures, which then become vehicles and instances of trance-inducing repetition.

"p"All this may seem remedial to anyone remotely familiar with the group, but it bears repeating in the face of the cool reaction Stereolab's latest long-player, Sound-Dust, may get. Listeners hoping for a radical departure from previous outings may be disappointed to find that the disc doesn't necessarily break new ground - lush arrangements, enchanting melodies and otherworldly tones abound, but that's to be expected from Stereolab. But to assess this apparent lack of progress as aesthetic stasis or another signal of the group's lapse into irrelevance would be to overlook the ways in which their prolific output (eight LPs and scores of singles and EPs in the span of 10 years) incessantly reworks the same themes and ideas, as if the band wanted their records to blend into a seemingly endless, repetitious whole. It's a subversive pop formula that questions assumptions about innovation, originality and aesthetic progress, and one that Sound-Dust recalculates in superb fashion.
