Stereolab - Fab Four Suture
Label: Select Label
Format: CD


Hit and miss CD compilation of 6 limited vinyl only 7" singles from the ever unique Stereolab, which will mainly appeal to hardcore members of their fan club

Stereolab's new album doesn't consist of any new material. It is is a compilation of 6 limited vinyl only 7" singles that have been collected together on an album. As ever, it all sounds uniquely like Stereolab. It sounds French in places but never completely, and of course it sounds of another generation, lost somewhere between the the late 60's and mid 70's Some of the pieces are fascinating, but others just grate on your nerves after a while. The latter tracks are the strongest. 'The Refrigerator' sounds like it has escaped from the 60's art movie 'Blow Up', while 'Whisper' has a more of an electro feel and is dancey. It is a fine piece of work, but mainly for hardcore members of their fan club.

1 Kyberneticka Babicka Pt. 1
2 Interlock
3 Eye of the Volcano
4 Plastic Mile
5 "Get a Shot of the Refrigerator"
