All about connectivity…
listen to a live track, below.
By Blurt Staff
Stereolab songstress Laetita Sadier debuted as a solo act
with The Trip and now delivers her
follow-up LP, Silencio, on July 24.
Her label, Drag
City, describes it
thusly: “That noise preventing your connectivity comes from society – the noise
of commercialism and the marketplace overwhelming your ability to cut deeply
inward, prohibiting your inner-connections. Silencio may help you understand how to resist the rules of these systems, but only
if you listen.”
On hand: former Stereolabber, Tim Gane; and musical
drifter-man James Elkington provides writing for two tracks in addition to
recording and playing on much of the record. Also in the mix is Sam Prekop of
The Sea And Cake.
Following last year’s solo venture touring parts of the
country with Beirut,
Laetitia will return with full band this fall.
