Stereolab TicketsOne of the most inventive bands of the '90s, English group Stereolab have reunited to play their first series of shows in a decade. Pioneering a style dubbed "post-rock" by critics, their forward-looking music incorporated a slew of influences from jazz to German '70s progressive rock, to Brazilian samba and '60s easy listening pop and more. Stereolab enjoy a large cult following resulting from an array of concerts and albums, including 1994's Mars Audiac Quartet and 1997's Dots and Loops. Stereolab will be playing career-spanning sets with ticket demand expected to be strong.
The "Groop" Takes OffFormed in London in 1990 by songwriters Tim Gane and Lætitia Sadier, the "groop" - as they called themselves - began putting out singles and EPs on their own label. Initially embracing a guitar-based pop, they began to experiment with a wider variety of sounds with 1993's album Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements. Stereolab signed to Elektra this same year and began to play to a growing audience in the US. Critics and fans consider a trio of albums released in the mid-90s to be among their best work. Indie music website Pitchfork has cited the last of these releases, Dots and Loops, as the band's masterpiece. It was also their first release to chart on Billboard. Along the way, the band released a series of singles and compilations that revealed multiple facets of their wide-ranging sound. They also continued to tour, playing to large halls across the US and Europe. The band continued with more genre-bending releases, culminating in 2008's Chemical Chords. At this, the band took an extended hiatus to pursue other projects. Interest in the band continued to increase, as newer artists commonly cited them as an influence.
