Stereolab – October 2, 2008 Irving Plaza (2008)

/Krautrock, French disco, Krautrock, Art pop, Live session, Electronic, Psychedelic pop, Easy listening, Indietronica/

Comment: Stereolab was undoubtedly one of the most important indie combos in the 90s along with My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Lycia, Mercury Rev, Labradford and Tortoise. Their sound was a mix of shoegaze, Krautrock, art pop, indietronica, French disco, and psychedelic pop. Fortunately the Sadier-Gane led combo albums would not bear clear-cut elements from their Marxist principles whose representation would have been a simply ridiculous, populist bullshit just to show off for nobody. I guess that the die-hard anarchist would despise the genocidal tendencies so characteristic to communism throughout the history. This set involves 19 tracks and the result is a vivid kraut jamming saturated with bitty nylon bass strings, psychedelic Farfisa organ and Moog synthesiser sounds and Neu! inspired motorik beats. It is a great live session by the great group indeed.
