Spring & Flowers: The Flower Called Nowhere

Stereolab: The Flower Called Nowhere


Stereolab is, to me, a quintessential springtime group. The light, airy vocals floating above busy, growing-and-flowing soundscapes make it perfect headphone music for meandering walks. It works good as a garden-tending soundtrack, too: I can almost percieve the little flower-shoots and vegetable stalks basking in the glow of this sunny music.

"The Flower Called Nowhere" can be found on Stereolab's 1997 release Dots And Loops, which, as far as I can tell, didn't chart anywhere.

Incidently, flowers are mentioned nowhere in the lyric.

More information on the band can be found on Wikipedia, of course.

*edit* Dots and Loops did chart! It rose to #111 on the Billboard 200.
