Stereolab Releasing New Album ‘Not Music’

August 17, 2010 by  

One of John Peel’s favourite bands, Stereolab, are set to release their twelth album, ‘Not Music’, through Duophonic UHF Diskson on November 16th.

Over the Summer of 2007 Stereolab reconvened at Instant Zero, their studio in Bordeaux to record 32 new songs which would become two albums – 2008’s Chemical Chords and their new release, Not Music.

The recordings began when Tim Gane started messing with “a series of about seventy tiny drum loops” on top of improvised chord sequences using piano and vibraphone. “Building them up from there – later slowing the tracks down or speeding them up – a totally new way of doing songs for us?”

Not Music is Stereolab’s twelfth album and is released during the band’s self-imposed hiatus from recording and touring, via Stereolab’s own imprint Duophonic UHF Disk.

The full tracklisting is:

1. Everybody’s Weird Except M
2. Supha Jaianto
3. So Is Cardboard Clouds,
4. Equivalences
5. Lelekato Sugar
6. Silver Sands
7. Two Finger Symphony
8. Delugeoisie
9. Laserblast
10. Sun Demon
11. Aelita
