During the early days of June we posted photos from Stereolab’s “secret” fan-only show at the Windmill in Brixton, where they premiered new songs from the forthcoming Chemical Chords. We’ve already seen and heard brassy “Three Women,” but the propulsive “Valley Hi!” — which isn’t a Xiu Xiu song by the way — is newer to our eyes and ears. While you absorb it, keep watch for some of the whitest dancing ever captured on tape. If you miss him the first time, no worries: The camera person noticed dude’s moves as well.
If you’re craving more Chemical, a new MP3 for “Neon Beanbag” will go up at the band’s site today.
