Lætitia Sadier Source Ensemble
Mon 10 Apr 2017
Lætitia Sadier sometimes known as Seaya Sadier is a French musician best known as the singer of the band Stereolab. Sadier was working as a nanny when she met McCarthy guitarist Tim Gane at a gig in Paris during the late 1980s. Sadier was disillusioned with the rock scene in France, and soon moved to London to be with Gane and to pursue her career. She contributed vocals to McCarthy’s final albums and when McCarthy broke up in1990 and she and Gane immediately formed the hugely influential Stereolab.
Find Me Finding You, is the new album from Lætitias new ensemble.
From its percolating opening beat, Find Me Finding You locates new systems within the sound-universe of Laetitia Sadier. When we hear synth lines diving, lifting and drifting, unusual guitar textures, the plucked sound of flat wound bass strings or the bottomless pulsing of bass pedals stepping out of the mix with an exquisite vibrancy, this is the sound of the Source Ensemble!
This designation implies a new togetherness phase; alongside long-time collaborators Emmanuel Mario and Xavi Munoz, keyboard and flutes parts played by David Thayer were essential contributions, as well as further keys, synths and electronics from Phil M FU andseveral intense guitar sequences from Mason le Long.
