Interlock, Kyberneticka Babicka, Plastic Mile

Bloody Stereolab. No sooner do they put out a compilation of all their hard to find EPs – saving you much eBay stress and money – they follow it with a limited edition triple seven inch. Fortunately, new fangled technology means that all six tracks are also available as a download. Unfortunately, Stereolab continue to follow their recent trend of always being good, but rarely being great.

Such normal service means that the perfect pop days of ‘Ping Pong’ and ‘French Disko’ are behind us, with four of the new songs content to amble along pushing all the right buttons without bothering to flick your switches. But just when you’re least expecting it, ‘Interlock’ pulls out most of the stops, sticks it to the man and reminds you why you loved Stereolab so much in the first place.
