Stereolab ‎- Cobra And Phases Group Play Voltage In The Milky Night

I'm coming out! I admit it, I am an inverted snob! There, I've said it. But, do you know that feeling you get when people you hate start liking the bands that you love? It somehow becomes the bands fault? Well that happened for me with Stereolab. They started to become "popular" (in strictly relative terms) and they ended up being one of my guilty secrets where I would listen to them in private with the curtains closed. Well, now is the time to declare my unending love of Stereolab and it feels good!

Formed around the core of Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier, this also features Morgane Lhote, Mary Hansen, Simon Johns, Sean O'Hagan (of Microdisney and The High Llamas), John McEntire (of My Dad Is Dead, Bastro, Gastr Del Sol, Tortoise, etc), Jim O'Rourke (who also handles a lot of the recording and production duties) and a host of people on Strings and Brass. It was originally released on their own Duophonic label as a Double LP and CD in 1999.

It always was and remains an example of absolute aural perfection.
