Stereolab/Nurse With Wound

I feel like there is an alternative universe where Stereolab is the most popular band in the world. I mean, they sound so sweet to me I can't even listen to them all the time. But when I do listen to it, I love it.

Nurse With Wound has always seemed inscrutable to me. I've only ever seen their records in English record shops for no less than £50, so they've never been a band that I've explored particularly thoroughly (or at all, really). I purchased both of these new (although Crumb Duck is a reissue, so I am also including the bonus tracks), thus avoiding high priced sticker tags (although as imports they weren't cheap records new either).

These are some dope jams. "Simple Headphone Mind" might just be my favorite Stereolab song.

Dig it, etc.

Ladies and gentlemen, for yr listening pleasure, Stereolab/Nurse With Wound.

BJ, you will be pleased to know that Trippin' With Birds makes Lindsay's grey cat Bruce flip out a little bit.

You're right, I am pleased. Bruce is quite the character, etc.
