Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble

Beautifully understated, we here were always a little taken by the quieter more mellow moments snuggled amid the grooves of Stereolab platters. First listen to ‘love captive’ had us scribbling down in our memory notes the words ‘intimate, free spirited, thoughtful and ponder’ – I’d like to think they encapsulate the mood, the vibe and the overall hit you get listening to this, the latest offering from Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble. Released just ahead of the collectives debut full length ‘find me finding you’ through drag city, ‘love captive’ features guest appearances by hot chip’s Alexis Taylor on duetting duties and Rob Mazurek on coronet and adding an arresting noir seasoning to the proceedings, as to the track itself, lightly filtered and dreamily dinked it’s spectral allure colouring the gaps between ‘dots and loops’ and ‘cobra phases’ all the time stranded in its own hermitically sealed bubble on a faraway orbital path transmitting love notes back home through the star sprayed ether whilst delicately coded in a Bacharach and David flavouring.
