Experiencing The Trip

posted October 1st, 2010

Hot damn, the new solo record from Laetitia Sadier, The Trip, has literally flown out the door over the last couple weeks. We knew the album was something special, yeah; we’re just stoked that you, the congregation, have received the Drag City sermon! As an especially sweet bonus, now peoples of all nations get a chance to see this Stereolab-ite assert her solo-self live, in person, over the next two months! Coming off a packed in-store performance at the Rough Trade East in London-town, Laetitia sets up to ride on through the UK and mainland Europe, beginning Sunday night in Manchester, UK, at Cornerhouse. And get this, she’s performing an exclusive set in the Library where Marx and Engels famously researched what was later to become Das Kapital. Need more convincing? Check out this extremely haunting and beautiful rendition of “One Million Year Trip” that Laetitia performed solo, in Santiago earlier this year. If you’re not floored, you don’t have a pulse:
