See & Do - THURSDAY/15 Issue Date November 14 2001

STEREOLAB, REBECCA GATES — Stereolab helped popularize the retro-futurist Space Age Lounge sound in the early to mid-'90s, but then seemed to get stuck in the past for a few years. But on their latest, Sound-Dust, the British band with the French/German sound and American college following have added newly animated arrangements to their electronic drones and melodic hymns that recall their best moments. Former Spinanes leader Rebecca Gates, whose latest release, Ruby Series, is rift with robotic rhythms and sonic textures. Live, Gates brings seductive, breathy pop — minimalist but moving, intimate but inventive — like pillow talk on a public stage. Variety Playhouse (Ware)
