Laetitia Sadier, 'The Trip' (Drag City)

8
The Trip
Critical Mass
Release Date: August 24, 2010
Label: Drag City

by Jon Young

The first solo outing by the Stereolab frontwoman is a reaction to tragic news -- her younger sister's suicide. Supported by a crew that includes singer-songwriter Richard Swift and members of her Monade side project, Sadier confronts the subject in the mesmerizing title track, sighing, "She went on a million-year trip and left everything behind." Caressed by gentle guitars and synths, her elegantly serene voice and airy melodies impart a sense of stubborn, reassuring endurance in the face of soul-crushing melancholy.
