One of the new Stereolab EP's is now available on the iTunes music store... I'm just settling in for a first listen.
Update: The first half of the album is very evocative of the Koyaanisqatsi soundtrack by Philip Glass. The second half is sounding more progressive, like Stereolab's normal evolution between albums. This EP is also a bit of a throwback to an earlier EP of theirs - First of the Microbe Hunters - but I can't quite place why. Listening to new Stereolab always makes me feel like I've come home again.
Further update: After some digging around, it seems that the EP on the iTMS includes all the songs on the 3 EP's that were to be released. So for a slick $5.94, I've got all the new Stereolab tracks. Joy.
