About

Laetitia Sadier, best known for fronting John Peel favourites Stereolab, returns to South  Street in support of her new album Find Me Finding You. Released by legendary US label Drag City on March 24th, under the collective name Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, it manages to strike new chords while touching familiar keys in the song of life.

Find Me Finding You locates new systems within the sound-universe of Laetitia Sadier. Synth lines diving, lifting and drifting, unusual guitar textures, the plucked sound of flat wound bass strings and pulsing of bass pedals stepping out of the mix with an exquisite vibrancy. This is the sound of the Source Ensemble!

The first single, "Undying Love For Humanity", announces its immediacy with protracted rhythms and pronounced vocal expressions. Laetitia proclaims power to the people--now! It's a call to arms for the public to recognize and exercise their strength for good, which is just what the world needs now at this moment in time. It doesn't hurt that "Undying Love For Humanity" is catchy as hell, now does it?
