Stereo Total: Anti Love Song [Album Review]

Stereo Total

Stereo Total (Stereo Total) joins euro sounds from France and Germany to create a style of music somewhere between Krautrock and new-wave. The duo has a string of albums released through Olympia label Kill Rock Stars and their latest EP pressed to vinyl is Anti Love Song.

It’s easy to pinpoint a favorite — the title track. Françoise Cactus’ German accent and the signature lack of Krautrock emotion as she sings And just as hard as I’d fall for you, boy / Well know you’d fall for me harder / That’s why I don’t want to love you. Add consistency in drums and a string of new-wave synth lines, and the song becomes a pillar of ecstacy.

“I Wanna Be A Mama” finds Brezel Göring taking the lead on vocals, the song delves into the influences parents indulge onto their children: I will call him Lucifer and teach him how to criticize / I’ll teach him how to live off prostitution / I will teach him how to kill / Oh yeah, I wanna be a mama.

Stereo Total excels at pointing out ridiculous things rampant in society. No topic is off-limits and that leads to some pretty clever and unique music.
