Monade

2008
Too Pure

The final Monade album was the most fleshed-out, with Lætitia Sadier again backed by a wide number of performers, including both returning guests like Joe Watson and, even more importantly, a new collaborator in the form of drummer/producer Emmanuel Mario, who would go on to work with Sadier on numerous future projects. Again suggesting Stereolab vibes, Monade still finds its own elegant art-pop approach, as with the tight rhythms of “Entre Chien et Loup,” the striking harmony break on “Elle Topo” and “Invitation”’s elaborate shifting grooves.
