Over the course of her career, spanning three-plus decades, Laetitia Sadier has never shied away from the hard topics, or stopped advocating for the possibility of self determination and emancipation in the face of the powers that be, conscious or unconscious.

This is an essential part of the foundation she co-built with Stereolab, showcasing her spiritual, scientific and sociopolitical inquiries. On 'Rooting For Love', the report is set alight by the heat of a turbulent world, collapsing institutions and Laetitia's fully engaged process of expression as well as orchestration. The opening number, "Who + What" elucidates the central issue of the album: a call for a collective striving for Gnosis - an inquisitive outlook that will lend clues to the traumatized civilizations of Earth, allowing us to evolve away from millennia of alienation and suffering and towards the achievability of healing.

The musical arrangements help to embody the layers of the issue, as with "Who + What"'s combination of organ, synths, guitar, bass, trombone, drum programming, vibraphone and zither, all working along intricate paths of chord and tempo changes. Leading from the inside is the implacable presence of Laetitia Sadier, herself interacting with a vocal assembly of men and women billed as The Choir. The regular reappearance of The Choir throughout 'Rooting For Love' is a reminder of this music being one of a people in critical mass, in addition to an evolution that continues to deepen the rich harmonic fields in which Laetitia plays. Past wounds are addressed again and again in the libretto, as the music provides a transformational balm to aid the healing process.

The melodic funk of bassist Xavi Mu oz leads a Chic-adjacent slink to the occasional dance floor vibes and no-wave rockouts, while Hannes Plattemier and Emma Mario take turns in mixing the tracks and informing the far reaches of the material, with vibes, additional drum programming and synths alongside a talented cast of players and singers from Laetita's Source Ensemble and beyond.
