New Stereolab - "Three Women"

By theajaysharma

Stereolab's forthcoming Chemical Chords is their first proper album in four years. Wow and flutter. (We've decided not to count 2006's Fab Four Suture EP, because four years sounds more dramatic, and that way we got to make a bad pun, too.) Have to say, the fact that they've been around for almost 20 years at this point makes some of us feel really old. Like, those of us who remember buying Peng! the week it was released in 1992 or driving around in a beat-up Impala and obsessing a cassette copy of Mars Audiac Quintet. Sheesh. All these years later and "Three Women" sounds like Stereolab, though in a sunny, horn-y, strutting late-period way. It's a decent track, but like much of Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane and Co's back catalog, it'll likely work best nestled into the whole. - Source
