Oscillons from the Anti-Sun [3CD + DVD]

£14.99

Product description

Oscillons from the Anti-Sun is a neat box set of EP songs covering the majority of Stereolab‘s 14 years of adventures in pop music, complete with a DVD of videos and TV performances. As a Stereolab primer, this is as close to perfect as it gets. Granted, for the uninitiated, such a mass of material could be rather daunting, but it’s worth sticking with as this band has a rich and surprisingly varied back catalogue. Though the songs aren’t presented in chronological order, a quick glance at the sleevenotes for the dates will help you track their progression from the fuzzy motorik beats of "French Disko" through the easy retro-futurist politico-pop of "Wow and Flutter" and "Ping-Pong" to the skittering, jazz-inflected "The Free Design". With everything in between.

Indeed, Stereolab have remained resolutely individual over the past decade and a half, marrying socialist polemic with easy-on-the-ear pop in a way that no one has managed before or since. As such, this bargain-priced collection (the DVD is worth the price alone) should be an essential purchase both for long-time fans and those looking for a great way in to the group’s pretty vast back catalogue. --Marc Bloomfield
