Album Review: Kybernetická Babicka

Let's go to Stereolab school. You'll need:

  • A penchant for vintage organs and recording equipment.
  • A love of light pop, psychedelia, and krautrock from the mid-60s through the mid-70s. (Extra credit: a not-so-dormant completist streak.)
  • Hard leftist politics are suggested, but not required. However, you will be expected to have a fetish for vocal harmonies and wordless lyrics.
  • A strong will in the face of legions of kids saying how much better Stereolab used to be.
  • Perhaps more importantly, an easygoing nature: remember, you can't mind repetition or fluorescent colors.
