Stereolab will release Pulse of the Early Brain, the fifth volume of their Switched On compilation series, on September 2 via Warp / Duophonic (preorder on limited edition vinyl), and today they've shared two more songs from it: "Simple Headphone Mind" and "Trippin" With The Birds," which are from their 1997 EP with Nurse With Wound. Here's more info on the tracks:

‘Simple Headphone Mind’ was the second collaboration between Stereolab and Nurse With Wound. As with their first release, ‘Crumb Duck’, Stereolab recorded the basic track and then handed it over to Steven Stapleton to do with, as he pleased.

Unlike with ‘Crumb Duck’, listeners can hear the original Stereolab recording, as it was issued under the title ‘The Long Hair Of Death’ on a split single with Yo La Tengo; this version was also featured on Stereolab's ‘Aluminum Tunes’ compilation album.

Listen to those below, and you can preorder Switched On Vol 5 on limited edition black vinyl, and pick up other Stereolab records, in the BV shop.

Stereolab's North American tour kicks off September 6 in Nashville and includes stops at Basilica Hudson on October 5 and NYC's Brooklyn Steel on October 10 & 11. They've also just announced new UK/EU dates for the fall -- check out their full itinerary below.
