Switched On collects Stereolab's earliest singles, capturing the group's hypnotic, driving sound in its infancy. Though they're more guitar-driven and rock-oriented than the band's later work, tracks like "Super-Electric" and "Au Grand Jour" prove that Stereolab's basic style -- Krautrock lock-grooves, bubbling analog synths, fuzzed-out guitars, and angelic vocals -- arrived fully formed.7/
Luckily, Duophonic has just remastered and reissued the band's '90s era compilation series, Switched On. The final installment in the series, Aluminum Tunes (Switched On Vol. 3), features EPs and rarities, including tracks from the band's splits with Tortoise and Yo La Tengo, pressed on 3 clear vinyl LPs.
