STEREOLAB announce second batch of expanded album reissues, out Sept 13th

On September 13th, 2019, Stereolab continue their year-long seven-album reissue campaign with the release of 1996's Emperor Tomato Ketchup, 1997's Dots and Loops and 1999's Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night as expanded and remastered editions on vinyl, compact disk and digital via Warp Records and the band's own Duophonic UHF Disks.

As with May's reissues of Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and Mars Audiac Quintet, each album has been remastered from the original 1/2" tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by Tim Gane. Bonus material will include alternate takes, 4 track demos and unreleased mixes.

The initial vinyl editions will be pressed onto triple clear vinyl with a poster/insert containing sleeve notes by Tim. They will also include a lottery-style scratch card - all winners will receive an exclusive Stereolab record at the end of 2019.

The band continue to produce super limited editions of 500 clear vinyl copies and 250 compact disks - each will have a numbered obi band made from 2" 24 track Stereolab master tape. These will only be available via mail order from the website.

To coincide with the news of the second batch of reissues' imminent arrival, the band today share 'Freestyle Dumpling', an outtake from the Emperor Tomato Ketchup sessions that until now had only seen release as part of a bonus 7" with the Japanese edition of their Aluminum Tunes rarities collection. Something of a hidden gem within the Lab's esteemed ouevre, it's a pulsating number lathered in alto sax and layers of gnarled guitar.
