Stereolab is best known for acquainting a generation of music fans with the synth-pop meets vintage electronic noise sound that eventually sparked a movement. Formed in 1991, the band was first the brainchild of Tim Gane, Laetitia Sadier, and eventually solidified with the additions of Mary Hansen, Morgane Lhote, and Andrew Ramsay. Rhino takes a look back at the band’s unarguable influence with a collection of tracks that helped put Stereolab on the map. Sixteen songs cover seven albums and the years 1993 to 2004, creating a chronological history of the band’s evolution. Fans will be happy to see classics from albums as early as Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements to 2004’s Margerine Eclipse An exclusive interview with Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier makes for an added bonus at the end of the disc.

Serene Velocit – A Stereolab Anthology will be available in CD, vinyl, and digital format August 22, 2006 on Rhino.
