Image of Laetitia Sadier


Best known as the lead vocalist for Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier was born in France and was working as a nanny in the late ‘80s when she met McCarthy member Tim Gane at one of the band’s gigs in Paris. She followed Gane to London and the duo formed Stereolab soon after McCarthy disbanded in 1990. The pair was inspired by lounge-pop, bossa nova, film music, and Krautrock, but ...

Editorial Reviews

2012 solo release from the Stereolab vocalist. Silencio is an album exploring the individual connection to a deeper self placed in a broader environment, in a similarly fresh kind of way. We're more concerned with the singularity of Laetitia Sadier. That voice, the one that reaches you and wraps you up each time you hear it. Calm, direct. Cool and hot. If you're unable to attain an inner connection with yourself, Laetitia will connect to it, for you. Silencio is your human modem. Features cameos from Sam Prekop (Sea & Cake) and Tim Gane (Stereolab).

Format: MP3 Music
After the demise of Stereolab, French musician Laetitia Sadier struck out on her own path. SILENCIO is Laetitia Sadier's second proper solo album, following her fantastic THE TRIP. Paired again with her ex-husband and Stereolab member, Tim Gane, Sadier created an album that is both charming and chaotic. While THE TRIP was (unfortunately) lost in a wave of Stereolab comparisons, SILENCIO does well to push Sadier further away from the shadow of her former band.

Sadier's first solo album was an exercise in mourning her recently departed sister - SILENCIO is much less personal in that regard. Many of the songs here are influenced from the increasingly dramatic political tensions in Europe. "Auscultation to the Nation" and "There is a Price to Pay for Freedom (and It Isn't Security)" emphasize Sadier's anger with the European political/economical climate. Even though the bulk of the lyrics come from Sadier's unrest with politics, the music on SILENCIO ranges rather wildly on a case-by-case basis. Tempos and styles vary so much that the only thing that really brings the album together is its political overtones and Sadier's exceptional voice.

The opening track, "Rule of the Game" begin the album with atmospheric noise and Sadier's halted vocal delivery. The track gradually develops through haunting swells of sound before giving way to what seems to be old-school rock-n-roll (it reminded me of the old classic "Tequila) at the last minute. The best moments on SILENCIO come from moments similar to those in "Rule of the Game" - the minimalist, spacey, and spare arrangements shine. The chorus of "There is a Price to Pay for Freedom" is a beautiful wash of dreamy textures.

Format: Audio CD
While "The Trip" was achingly personal, "Silencio" is a polemic: large chunks of this album unabashedly address socio-political issues and global injustices. It doesn't seem quite as immediate and gripping as her previous album, and maybe some of that is the detachment necessary for the subject matter (finance and fascism). With that caveat out of the way, it's really another truly gorgeous album from the former Stereolab chanteuse, even veering into old school Stereolab territory occasionally with ex-husband Tim Gane's churning guitar chords and some vintage electronics.

Overall a looser and sparser affair than anything the 'Lab did for their last half-dozen albums or so, "Silencio" also indulges Sadier's love of experimental music and texture, French pop, and even some pure silence recorded in a cathedral. A welcome addition to her solo catalog, even if it feels a little transitional.
