Stereolab-Dots and Loops. Kind of way ahead of its time, in spite of, or by virtue of, its retro-ness. Great, eclectic stuff. Lots and lots and lots of library music influences here, lots of nice bass, drums, guitar, singing, analog synths, etc. Kind of similar to what Black Moth Super Rainbow is doing. Very cinematic, loungy, psychadelic, retro, moog-filled, semi-fusiony elevator-music soul. They must listen to a lot of Mort Garson, Brian Bennet, Mike Vickers, KPM stuff, etc. Sounds hugely influenced by the first (and best) Flying Lizards album (Fourth Wall is also pretty good.) Would love to see them play live.
