Fans of krautrock-influenced retro-synth-lounge pop and Situationist philosophy, rejoice! After a long hiatus, Stereolab has announced an extensive reissue campaign. Throughout 2019, the band will reissue seven studio albums, including Transient Random-Noise Bursts (1993), Dots and Loops (1997), and Margerine Eclipse (2004).
What’s more, the band is teasing a return to the live stage, though no dates or shows have been announced. The last time Stereolab performed on stage was back in 2009; afterwards, the band’s members pursued other projects including Cavern of Anti-Matter, Little Tornados, and the Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble.
