WHAT WILL YOU GROW NOW? (VINYL)
The second collaborative album from Laetitia Sadier [Stereolab & solo] and Brazil's Momboj . Release via Stereolab's Duophonic Super 45s imprint. Modern Cosmology is a musical ensemble composed of six individuals of the human race, none of which are cosmologists or astronomers, although Felipe S. - who sings and plays the guitar - knows quite a bit about reading astrological charts. He shares his frontperson duties with one Laetitia Sadier who, by virtue of her singer-songwriter career both as a solo artist and as part of the Stereolab 'groop', happens to be one of the key figures of her bandmates' musical formation. Their paths first crossed when Marcelo - also on guitars - lent his amp for some of Laetitia's solo concerts in Brazil under the condition that he got to meet his musical idol, and along came his brother Vicente - who plays the drums - and keyboardist Chiquinho. The four lads, plus Mission rio Jos on bass, are collectively called Momboj , an established band on the Brazilian alternative scene.
