takes the velvet underground meets francoise hardy & classic bossa nova style honed in stereolab to new levels of sultry, experimental, achingly cool pop.

a fine set of often politically informed songs, sadier's voice modestly soaring with understated finesse over lush production of diverse textures, all swooping strings & smoky atmosphere, featuring multi-instrumental performances by jim elkington, julien gasc & benjamin gilbert, as well as an electronic cameo by sam prekop & former partner in stereolab, tim gane. "the sensual, summery, gently brassy gorgeousness of the music & the gauloises cool of sadier’s voice mean that, if you so choose, you can tune out of the lyrics & use it as the most sure-fire seduction soundtrack this side of 'let’s get it on'" - bbc music "spry, melodic & totally charming" 8/10 - uncut.
