April 26, 2015
Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 albums that have shaped me so far. The album this week is Emperor Tomato Ketchup by Stereolab.
This album was released in 1996 by British Alternative Rock band, Stereolab. The smooth, soothing and effortless vocals- sometimes sung in French, combined with the dub, indie rock, folk and sometimes funk infused grooves create an atmospheric and daring collection of work. This wholesome album brings with is a playful spirit, set behind a retro backdrop.
