Schema album cover


5 Rue Christine

It was only ever a one-off project between the final incarnation of the band Hovercraft and Stereolab’s Mary Hansen, adding vocals to what otherwise had been an instrumental band, but both in its moment and then after Hansen’s tragic passing, Schema’s one release remains an intriguing and retrospectively sad what-might-have-been. With Hansen’s easy, elegant singing, even with wordless lyrics, riding the 90s spacerock waves of songs like “Unde,” “Far From Where We Began,” and the Can-like drive of “We Think We’re Sane,” it’s all very engaging.
