Laika & The Cosmonauts - Cosmopolis 1988-2008 CD


Item Detail:

Laika & The Cosmonauts – Cosmopolis (1988-2008) (YepRoc)

To cap their amazing career, Yep Roc released a 27 track compilation featuring some of their best songs of their 20 year run, along with a few unreleased tracks. There haven't been many surf/instro bands that have a unique sound, but this band definitely did. The twang and echo of their guitars, the keyboards, the songwriting – all of this combined to create a sound that is instantly definable as Laika & The Cosmonauts. Personal faves include “Floating”, “Note Crisis”, “Expose”, “Global Village”, “Surfs You Right!”, “C’mon Do The Laika”, and “Delayrium”. Understandibly, as a Yep Roc release the song selection is skewed towards their two Yep Roc releases, with 10 of the 25 released songs coming from Local Warming and Absurdistan – I personally would have selected a few more cuts from Surfs You Right! And C’mon Do The Laika!. This is an excellent compilation from start to finish – Yep Roc and Laika & The Cosmonauts have put together a great CD that perfectly captures the sound of the band from all periods of their career.
