A CONVERSATION WITH LAETITIA SADIER
We will spend one hour with Laetitia Sadier, an artist that’s hugely influential to so many people in the current independent scene. She sang and played keyboards in Stereolab, and she wrote most of the lyrics of the band. Their influence is enormous, musically, aesthetically and politically: they discovered French New Wave, German kraut-rock, Brazilian bossanova, American easy-listening and political Marxism and Situationism (among many other references) to a whole generation, and created a repertoire that still sounds as modern and timeless as when it was created. She has kept working in her brilliant solo career and has collaborated with people like Bradford Cox and Tyler, the Creator. There is so much we want to know from her, a sixty minutes conversation may be too short!
