NOW PLAYING: Stereolab, ‘Dots and Loops’

The Artist/Album: Stereolab, Dots and Loops (Elektra, 1997)

Our Review: The zou bisou bisou of retrograde pop records, with a scatter-brained, 17-minute series of prismatic suites at its centerpiece (“Refractions in the Plastic Pulse”). Francophiles need not apply, but it certainly doesn’t hurt.
