Friday Song: Stereolab

Stereolab takes me back to Long Beach bike rides and Berkeley college life rooms. I adore the twining of hard 70’s Euro-synth and airy 60’s Pan-Am lounge, especially their 1994 disc, “Mars Audiac Quintent.” I think it’s superior even more than the more critically praised “Emperor Tomato Ketchup.” It was a tragedy when singer Mary Hansen was killed in an accident, but the band continued on until “Chemical Chords” in 2008 (for the 4AD label naturally). Here’s the second video from that release, a lovely Stereolab ditty called “Neon Beanbag.”
