Though this British band went on hiatus in 2009 they released an album at the end of 2010. Magic, you ask? No, I answer. The songs on this album are products of the recording sessions involved in the making of their 2008 album "Chemical Chords". For those of you not familiar with the work of Stereolab, their sound is a mixture of dream pop and indie lounge. Though on this album you can hear the influences of jazz, soul and psychedelia.

All their songs are short little bursts of sound that tend to clock in at under four minutes, though there are a couple of exceptions on this album. They really play to this generation with their short attention span. The music is quite fascinating in that it seems to be just them experimenting with keyboard sounds with drum loops running over it. Hopefully they get back together and keep on making this experimental yet catchy brand of music.
