Reseña de álbum

During the two years that passed between the release of Silver Apples of the Moon and its follow-up, Sounds of the Satellites, the dub, trip-hop and drum'n'bass sounds which made Laika so distinctive and original the first time out became commonplace; never given their proper due as pioneers of electronica anyway, their prospects for creating music of similar depth and invention appeared to grow dimmer and dimmer as time went on. Miraculously, Sounds of the Satellites is even better than its predecessor, a simultaneous expansion of the band's sonic palette and a brilliant refinement of their past innovations. The pivotal difference between Laika and other similarly inclined artists is their unparalleled sense of atmosphere: far removed from the pummeling insistence of groups like Prodigy or the Chemical Brothers, Laika also avoids the cinematic film-noir ambience of Portishead in favor of a subdued, dreamlike labyrinth of sound — the album is, by turns, claustrophobic ("Breather"), sexy ("Almost Sleeping") and menacing ("Shut Off/Curl Up"). Rarely is electronic music so suggestive, so fluid, or so human; Sounds of the Satellites exists in its own orbit, so far ahead of its contemporaries as to be off of the map.

Choons 4 true space cadets.

Laika are brilliant at creating space and room with music. Breather is the ultimate floating song. Look for their Peel Sessions, it's worth the hunt. Like this try: Karsh Kale or DJ spooky.

freakin' awesome!

If you are a Portishead fan, or just dig alt music with it's own sound, you MUST get this. They are a unique band, and limited exposure (I only discovered them from hearing them on an episode of Buffy, yeah, don't laugh, haha), but DAMN they are great.

The Follow-Up That Didn't Disappoint

Without throwing out the formula set down on Silver Apples, Laika delivered a warmer, almost loungy record. It's more consistent than album one - it feels like it's woven from whole clothe. Sure, we miss the striking highpoints, the band's early, crazed creativity, but then we get caught up in the flow, beginning to end, of one of the great chill-out records of the 90s.

Biografía

Fecha de formación: London, England, 1993

Género: Jazz

Años de actividad: '90s

Like their namesake — the dog rocketed into orbit by the Soviets renowned as the first living creature to exit the earth's atmosphere — Laika traveled the spaceways, forging a distinct and wildly experimental fusion of hip-hop, jazz, electronica, dub, and Krautrock without earthly precedent. Somewhat of a Too Pure label all-star team comprised of former Moonshake vocalist/programmer Margaret Fiedler and bassist John Frenett, onetime PJ Harvey drummer Rob Ellis, and noted producer Guy...
