Chemical Chords [Import]
(Bonus Tracks, Deluxe Edition)
Special import edition of the UK band's 2008 album includes two bonus tracks ('The Nth Degree' and 'Magne-Music') and is housed in a paper sleeve. Being released by the iconic legendary label 4AD, Chemical Chords is a collection of purposefully short, dense, fast Pop songs brimming with Motown-like drums, Baroque-Pop brass and string arrangements and etched with some of their most eloquent, mellifluous vocal performances to date, it is, nonetheless, classic Stereolab; like all their best work, a perfect equipoise between an implausibly cool past and a shamelessly exotic future. Limited to 2500 units. 4AD.
