Highly underrated band.
Absolute inspiration and genre definers perhaps even pioneers. They sounded like nothing else at the time or before. I would love love love to see them return. I think the world could seriously do with a few more Laika albums or some other iteration of Laika creativity.

I am astonished that only one person here celebrates the wonderful music of Laika. Incredible sounds and rhythms. All those polyrhythmic grooves, intense but also ambient, always kept cool because of the smart singing.

Silver Apples >> is a wild chaotic album, with weird drummashines and fantastic melodies.
Sounds + Good Looking >> are more developed, very fine studio production, nervous jungle meets atmospheric sounds, mostly midtempo grooves.
Wherever >> drives the whole thing into space. chillin' in a highspeed train.
I love them all.

Laika is such an overlooked and underrated band... unique, characteristic synthesized sounds, sophisticated, syncopated rhythms and once very sensual, and other time melancholic vocals of Margaret Fiedler singing poetic, intriguing lyrics - that all makes their music absolutely worth attention. They should be way more famous for originality they create(d).
