Adapting their trademark blend of vintage keyboards, airy french / english vocals, and frothy lounge-meets-electronica pop sensibilities. That's not to say that there are no new developments; one can hear the occasional dash of hip-hop rhythm (La Demeure), Autechre-like laptop glitch-pop (Vonal Declosion), and even a bit of disco (at the end of album-closer Dear Marge) amid the familiarly odd time signatures, quirky socio-political lyrical observations, and postmodern retro-futurism. Most importantly, though, Stereolab's finely tuned knack for interesting arrangements, arresting timbres, and modestly elegant melodies remains unsullied. Panned completely left and right, you can listen to it in halves or the whole. Choose your own adventure.
