Album Review: Stereolab - <em>Not Music</em>

After recently announcing a hiatus coming off last year's tour, Stereolab has released three albums of material stemming from the Chemical Chords sessions: Chemical Chords, Chemical Chords 2, and this year's Not Music. The material on Not Music incorporates more of Stereolab's ethereal, avant-garde leanings into the streamlined pop sensibilities found on Chemical Chords. Krautrock fans will be hooked on the mechanized beats while synth-pop enthusiasts will stay for the playfully layered melodies. Imagine that it's the first Sunday of March; it's about 12:00 pm, and you're sipping a bloody mary on the moon? That's Not Music. By Basement DJ the Doctor
