“This is French disco,” announced Laetitia Sadier at Stereolab’s excellent Pitchfork Music Festival show this summer. Is that what they’re calling indie rock now? The French-English band’s kaleidoscopic hybrid of lounge, jazz, disco, noise, archness, absurdity, and anything else that can suitably decorate a wicked groove continues to startle; they’re touring for the first time in a decade. With Bitchin Bajas.
