The Groop Played ''Space Age Bachelor Pad Music'' (1995)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Stereolab; Genres: Electronic, Indie Rock

Stereolab, the dream-poppy British band, made its Stateside splash last year with Mars Audiac Quintet. The weird magic is intact, if less developed, on The Groop Played ''Space Age Bachelor Pad Music'' and Pong!, the domestic reissues of earlier U.K. indie projects. Between the sensual vocals and loopy pop-rock rhythms, Stereolab makes an entrancingly creepy sort of mock-retro-pop. B+
