Stereolab 1997

Review

Cutting and pasting tracks from {^Emperor Tomato Ketchup} and the {&"Cybele's Reverie"} CD single, this four-song promo exists primarily to serve {&"The Noise of Carpet,"} a brilliant subversion of {\pop} conventions that remains a high-water mark in the vast {$Stereolab} catalog. A blistering repudiation of {\alt-rock}'s "loser, baby" snark, its surging melody, zigzagging synths, and pointillist harmonies capture the absolute essence of the group's retro-futurist ethos. Presumably a tribute to art-{\folk} chanteuse {$Brigitte Fontaine}, the non-LP {&"Brigitte"} is a study in contrasts. Its first three minutes embrace the kind of bouncy, insistent electro-{\pop} that defined {$Stereolab}'s earlier records, but then the song breaks in half, with the remainder exploring the airy, rapturous sounds and textures that would assume prominence during the next stage of their career. {&"Les Yper-Yper Sound"} -- a throbbing instrumental remix of the LP's {&"Les Yper-Sound"} -- rounds out the set. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
