Stereolab - Pack Yr Romantic Mind

Here's an old favourite from the 1993 album Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements. Even with Laetitia Sadler turning all brexity I'm still very fond of the power lounge stylings of Pack Yr Romantic Mind. Part of it is her utterly idiosyncratic phrasing that leaves the vocal refrain indecipherable, but a lot of it has to do with the way that the post-structuralist pop is given unexpected urgency by the insistent guitar that keeps breaking through. Allusory stuff.
