A Few Steps More

Monade

2005
Too Pure

Following her first Monade collection of solo home recordings, Lætitia Sadier on A Few Steps More recruited a full set of supporting players, notably including Stereolab veteran Joe Watson on a variety of instruments, to perform a dozen engaging efforts. While there’s an unsurprising carryover from Stereolab’s overall aesthetic, the feeling often is a little more intimate overall; Xavier Challebard’s drumming wisely doesn’t try and replicate Andy Ramsay’s, and songs like “La Salles de Pas Perdus” and “Sensible et Extensible” find their own subtler approach.
