Stereo Total preview

| August 28, 2010

It’s either the mark of insanity or artistry that once people get a sense of what you’re about and move on that you keep on going with it anyway.

Not that it encapsulates everything, but Stereo Total do multi-lingual electro/synth-pop on a shoestring budget and as if they’ve just eaten a box of Cocoa Puffs. Françoise Cactus and Brezel Göring put the indie world on notice with 2001’s Musique Automatique and haven’t stopped. No boundaries exist on what they can sing about or in what language, and this year’s Baby Ouh! (Kill Rock Stars) goes from Warhol to sex and French to English to Spanish. And it’s par for the course. No two albums are the same, yet the all are in their hyperkinetic, gonna-play-like-this-’til-you-get-up-and-dance brattiness. (Monday@Empty Bottle with Brilliant Pebbles and Boutros.
