Stereolab announce classic studio album reissues and possible reunion shows in 2019
Transient random-noise bursts...now with MORE ANNOUNCEMENTS!

Holy MOTHER of GOD! The original K-Pop band (where K stands for “Krautrock-yéyé-Marxist-exotica,” obviously), and my all-time personal most-scrobbled artist (google it), the mighty Stereolab, has hinted at some *major* news on their website yesterday morning. The French-English group has announced that they will be reissuing their classic 1993-2004 run of seven albums next year (from Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements to Margerine Eclipse), and that we should all “keep ‘em peeled for news of the live return of Stereolab.” (!!!)

If it really comes to be, the event would mark the first time any live music has been performed under the band’s name since 2009, when, in the aftermath of singer/keyboardist Mary Hansen’s untimely passing, its four remaining members announced going on an indefinite hiatus. Since the split, group founders Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane have been focusing on a solo career and the Cavern of Anti-Matter project, respectively.

The unexpected but oh-so-wonderful news comes only two months after the release of Stereolab’s three Switched On compilation reissues, which collected singles, EPs, and rarities from the first seven years of the band’s existence. Expect follow-up news from the space lounge soon, and until then, listen to some choice cuts from “The Groop” below:
