If you’re smitten with the wry, daft lyrics and PlaySkool-quality production of acts like Fannypack, try these reissues from Berlin’s Stereo Total (pronounced toe-TAHL). Charmingly eccentric duo Francoise Cactus and Brezel Goring sing in French and German and color their shiny songs with garage rock, new wave, and balmy Hawaiian guitars. And though they’re never cynical, Stereo Total do have a tasty tartness. In the English-language give-me-some-space love song ”The Other Side of You,” one of five bonus cuts on this version of 1997’s ”Monokini,” Cactus sings: ”Make me some distance, some tracks/Vanish into thin air/Show me how you look when you’re no longer there.” Meanwhile, the band’s 1996 debut, ”Oh Ah,” offers funny covers of KC and the Sunshine Band’s ”Get Down Tonight” and Salt ‘N’ Pepa’s ”Push It.” Get up on this.
