Laetitia Sadier
“One Million Year Trip”
Playing Wednesday at The Rock Shop
(249 4th Avenue, Park Slope)
Get: Tickets ($12) | Directions

Laetitia Sadier, best known for her work in the seminal '90’s post-rock band Stereolab, has gone rogue. Last year, she released a contemplative solo album of originals and covers that sounds something liked stripped-down Stereolab infused with an electric and eccentric take on Brazilian tropicalia. Where Stereolab’s lyrics tended towards the political left and the abstract, Sadier’s solo material treads into deeply personal territory. “One Million Year Trip” may sound something like sunshine, but Sadier is singing abut the suicide of her sister: “She went on a million-year trip and left everything behind.”
