Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements
Released: Jun 2005
Stereolab had made brilliant songs before, but this was their first brilliant album. Released in 1993, the group was able to balance its mixture of droning noise, discreet melodies, and sound manipulation. The album made digestible Krautrock out of indie art-pop in a way that truly was innovative. Every track is fantastic, but "Jenny Ondioline" is unbelievably good.
