Not Music album for sale by Stereolab was released Nov 30, 2010 on the Hostess label. Though Not Music was released in 2010, it was recorded at the same time as 2008's Chemical Chords, after touring in support of which Stereolab went on hiatus.

Instead, Not Music charts the more adventurous turns the band's sessions took, providing the more experimental yang to Chemical Chords' bubbly pop yin.

||Warm and wonderful|
Not Music album for sale I've been a big fan of Stereolab since Dots & Loops and always loved the warmth of that album. Not Music is beautifully recorded and realised, and now I feel it competes with Dots & Loops as my favourite Stereolab. I find myself humming the songs alot and feeling compelled to play the album over, and over. There's only one weakness and that's the inclusion of a track (Silver Sands) that is quite long and lacking the usual layered and focussed instrumentation (I think it's a remix). But overall, this is 5-star album, as it decimates everything else I'm listening to right now.
