Overview

Released in 1993, Space Age Bachelor Pad Music refined Stereolab's sound further and also showcased the increasingly experimental focus of the band's music. Split into two sides -- the gentle, intricate "Easy Listening" and the more upbeat "New Wave" -- this eight-song EP ranges from the bubbly keyboard piece "Space Age Bachelor Pad Music (Foamy)" to the defiant, driving groove of "We're Not Adult Orientated." The sweet, close harmonies on "Ronco Symphony" and "The Groop Play Chord X" edge closer to the sophisticated, lounge pop-inspired sound explored during the rest of Stereolab's career, while the vibes of "Avant Garde M.O.R." and the fizzy keyboards of "Space Age Bachelor Pad Music (Mellow)" spotlight the band's more texturally complex arrangements. However, the immediacy of "We're Not Adult Orientated (Neu Wave Live)" and the hypnotic, fuzzy guitars on "U.H.F. - MFP" prove that while Stereolab gained more polish and ambition on Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, the band didn't lose any of its kinetic edge.

I enjoyed this cool Stereolab album "The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music" and somewhat I found it quite fascinating. This album was around when they used to be QUITE underground, but now I think they're about to grow popular since "Sound-Dust" and the loss of the Groop member, Mary Hansen, who died back in 2002. With this album, I would listen to this anytime with enjoyable songs like "Avant- Garde MOR" and "UHF." It almost has the same beats as if it were from the 60s and maybe, the Woodstock years. People, buy this album, 'cuz I think you'll love it. :-)
