Stereolab's Main Lady

Stereolab's quiet elegance and stylized intensity makes the perfect background music for freeing your mind to create. For me, Stereolab is akin to listening to artwork. Quieting yet stimulating, stark yet complex, the beautifully hypnotic voice of the band belongs to Laetitia Sadier. I'd read a lot of interviews with her about the music per se, but I was much more interested in having a conversation with her. The first thing that struck me about her was how nice she is. "Nice" is such an underrated word, but nonetheless apt and important. On a hot summer day in New York, I sat rapt, listening to her glorious speaking voice in a small conference room that looked like a space capsule.
