Stereolab's another one of those bands that I've always wanted to check out but never got around to it.

I need some encouragement!

Laetitia is amazing

3:32, they're worth checking out. Everyone seems to agree Emperor Tomato Ketchup is their best. But I really like Dots and Loops too.

^that depends on if you liked them as a german band and not a french band, in which case you'd agree that everything started going downhill with Emperor Tomato Ketchup.

^ Thanks, 4:24. What about that Transient Noise Bursts blahblahblah ..... album also? I think I've heard that one is also cool.

If you wanna hear what made a lot of people love them go for Transient Random Noise Bursts or the French Disco EP. Peng! (their first proper LP) is still my favorite.

Transient Noise Bursts

They're great and within their "sound" there is a wide variety. I actually think a good place to start is ABC Music, their BBC Radio 1 recordings, because you can really hear them as a rock band. I prefer Emperor Tomato Ketchup over Transient but I also really love the trippy, beautiful stuff on the later album Sound Dust. But yeah, Dots and Loops is good. Check 'em out for sure.
