Being a long time Stereolab fan I've always enjoyed lead vocalist Laetitia Sadier's side project Monade. I feel Laetitia's vision has been fully realized with Monstre Cosmic and I can't stop listening! Elegant, intimate, jazzy & refreshing. High points: THE WHOLE DANG ALBUM.........no lie! Monade puts on a great show so check them out if they're ever in town.

Monstre Cosmic, Monade's third release is the band's best. Founded by Laetitia Saider of Stereolab, Monade is often compared to the more famous Groop. Yet, this is NOT Stereolab-lite. Monade is an entirely different group with an engaging sound of its own. Rather than being limited to the lyrics as in Stereolab, here Laetitia Saider sets the tone for the music as well, and the result is beautiful. Monstre Cosmic is all at once entertaining, thought provoking, and emotional. The recording and mixing is well done, too. This album really is art to be experienced--not just looked at. Check out the band's My Space page to hear some songs, and as another reviewer recommended, see the band live if you have the chance: you won't be disappointed! This is one of the best albums I've heard in several years. I bought it right after the release in February, and I am still listening regularly.

If you're a Stereolab fan, or consider Laetitia Sadier the crucial element of Stereolab, this little known side project of her's, Monade, is a no brainer. Of their three albums, this one, "Monstre Cosmic" is the most fully realized and underexposed example of what she brings to the Stereolab table. All of the songs are composed by her and bear all the traits of her more well known band, but take a more formal approach to songwriting, arranging, and overall structure. Not as quirky with the retro synth sounds, though they do crop up here and there, conventional instrumentation, exquisite string arrangements, and her trombone convey a musicality with pop sensibilities and a certain sweetness. Singing in her native French lends a classy continental Euro vibe to it for Anglos with exotic tastes, and even though you may not understand the lyrics, her delivery and sense of vocal melody sound as organic as the top notch band of players that comprise Monade. Stereolab fans of course know of the tragic loss of Mary Hansen in 2001, and as on her solo record from 2011 "The Trip", she employs a female backup singer sounding remarkably like Mary, and one gets the sense that Laetitia not only lost a bandmate, but a much loved friend and musical soulmate. On her solo albums, one also gets the sense that one of her favorite records of all time must be "Friends" by the Beach Boys - Brian Wilson's own personal favorite. Though all the songs were composed by Laetitia, they are all arranged with the band, and in an alternate pop universe, Monade's "Monstre Cosmic" is a pleasant and engaging listen throughout that, like most Stereolab records coincidentally, becomes addictive listening in a non - Stereolab sort of way. Highly recommended.
