Laetitia Sadier announces sophomore solo album, Silencio, out July 24TH on Drag City


Silencio! It’s been two years since we took The Trip with Laetita Sadier. Her first true solo album since exiting the bedrooms of Monade and Stereolab, The Trip breathed freshly and deeply as both a personal homage to life’s journey and as a grieving process for the separations that are unavoidable within it. Born from a similar, natural need for stillness as well as agitation, Laetitia now delivers her follow-up LP, Silencio – an album exploring the individual connection to a deeper self, placed in a broader environment, in a similarly fresh kind of way.

Within Silencio’s dynamic song structures, the album features some exciting collaboration: there’s a new jammer with former Stereolabber, Tim Gane; and musical drifter-man James Elkington provides writing for two tracks in addition to recording and playing on much of the record. Need some other freaky names? OK! Sam Prekop shows up mysteriously. But that’s a story for another time.

Silencio is out July 24th on Drag City.
