Product Description

Lali Puna is the Munich based electro-experimental project of founding member Valerie Trebeljahr, now expanded to a four piece, and this is their particularly interesting remix project. Notable tracks begin with Lali Puna's crisply santised mix of the shoegaze-founding imperialists Slowdive on the tasteful 40 Days, swiftly followed by the aforementioned collaboration with Bomb The Bass on Clear Cut, a gloriously trippy slow groover. Morr Music. 2005.

It's funny how odds and sods collections by electronic artists often add up to their best releases, from Enon's Lost Marbles to Fennesz's Field Recordings compilation. I Thought I Was Over That: Rare, Remixed And B-Sides has the advantage of spanning multiple years, from Lali Puna's early electronic pop to their later, more guitar-oriented stuff. It also has many remixes commissioned by and for the band, deeply broadening the sonic palette. Formed with members of the Tied and Tickled Trio and the Notwist, Lali Puna is something of a minor supergroup. The music is melodic, mellow, and inventive stuff that blurs the line between pop and mildly out-there sounds with politically barbed lyrics sung breathily by Valerie Trebeljahr. As such, it's perfect for fans of Lamb, Stereolab, and Laika. A few songs are experiments that should have stayed in the studio; "Left-Handed Dub" is dreadful and the remixes by Flowchart and Two Lone Swordsmen are a bit dated--too ‘90s-sounding. But that's still only one tenth of the album, the rest of which is a pleasure. --Mike McGonigal

Format: Audio CD
Disc Two consists of remixes of many of the groups best recent tracks ("Small Things", "Nin-Com-Pop", "Faking the Books") by the likes of To Roccoco Rot and Two Lone Swordsmen and is JUST OK. None of the remixes come near the perfection of the originals. Whatever charm these remixes possess is transitory at best. One would think that the hushed ambience that characterizes Lali Puna's sound would allow for all kinds of marvelous interventions/expansions/diminutions, but most of the results prove otherwise.

On the other hand, Lali Puna themselves are excellent at inhabiting the space of others, whether by remixing (Two Lone Swordsmen's "It's not the worst I've looked", Dntel's "(This is) The Dream of Evan and Chan") or via remakes: Slowdive's "40 Days" and, best of all, the long forgotten (but not by me!) collaboration between Giorgio Moroder and Phil "Human League" Oakley, "Together in Electric Dreams." All these tracks are on Disc One, and here the Amazon reviewer is spot on: Disc One is just about the best Lali Puna album ever. Besides all these gems, there is the thunderous beauty of "Clear Cut", their brilliant collaboration with Bomb the Bass.

If you buy this CD for disc one, treating disc two as a kind of bonus disc, you can't go wrong.

Lali Puna is like nothing you've heard ever before. They grow on you faster than you wink. In this compilation, they gather songs that are covers, new tunes, remixes they did for alike musicians like Boom Bip or DNTEL, and remixes that other people like To Rococo Rot, Two Lone Swordsmen, and Alias did of their songs. The remixes are fresh and sort of give the tracks a twist, and they still sound wonderful. This is pure downtempo, sometimes with a touch of glitch. Valerie, who sings, has a very lovely voice and I think you can't go wrong when buying a Lali Puna record. These 2 albums include the beautiful songs "The Daily Match", "Together In Electric Dreams", "40 Days" and "Past Machine". You don't necessarily have to know all of the songs to enjoy the mixes. They are cool per se. If you like the pop-electronica, you should definitively go for it. A must-have selection of joyful tunes from the geniuses of Lali Puna.

But not great. This is good for background but not real listening. Its an effort to use as real music.

This is my first Lali Puna encounter and I love it! I think I will buy the whole collection. The music is mellow but interesting enough, so it doesn't make you want to fall asleep or anything. The vocals are soft and seductive and I really like the woman's voice. Over all I give this CD 5 satrs!!!!
