What our staff has to say: “Picking one Stereolab record out of the slew we got in recently for my recommendation was a challenge, because each of their records has elements that make it distinctive and special. Ultimately, I landed on popular fave Dots and Loops. This one pulls me back time and time again, a brilliant amalgamation of Stereolab’s influences, futuristic lounge music that defies a specific place on the timeline.” – Hannah
