Stereolab

I'll concure -- gorgeous music. I wasn't aware of how they could rock out, though, until I picked up the live set "ABC Music - Radio 1 Sessions" which is fantastic. <p></p><i></i>

Sweet! I only recently got into them. Another gift from my girlfriend.

We saw them here in Austin at La Zona Rosa just a year or so ago.

Yes ... THEY CAN ROCK!!!

Are Stereolab fans also typically Cocteau Twin fans?

Yeah, I think of them as an art band, making art music.
