Stereolab, who went on hiatus in 2009, have been playing some reunion shows and previously announced a 2019 reissue series, which kicked off with reissues of 1993’s Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and 1994’s Mars Audiac Quintet in May. Now they have announced three more reissues: 1996’s Emperor Tomato Ketchup, 1997’s Dots and Loops, and 1999’s Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night. All are due out on Warp/Duophonic UHF Disks on September 13 and include demos, rarities, alternate versions, and unreleased tracks. Today they have shared one of those bonus tracks, the rarity “Freestyle Dumpling,” which was originally released as a Japan-only seven-inch and is on the Emperor Tomato Ketchup reissue. Check it out below, followed by the tracklists for each reissue and the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Each reissue will be on vinyl, CD, and digital. “Freestyle Dumpling” is outtake from the Emperor Tomato Ketchup sessions and was part of a bonus 7-inch with the Japanese release of their rarities collection Aluminum Tunes.

A previous press release described the reissues this way: “Each album has been re-mastered from the original half-inch tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by [Stereolab’s Tim] Gane. Bonus material will include alternate takes, four-track demos, and unreleased mixes. Initial editions of each album will be pressed onto triple clear vinyl with an exclusive poster and insert featuring sleeve notes by Gane. They will also include a lottery style scratch card with a chance to win a limited edition 12-inch EP. The band have also produced a super limited vinyl edition of 500 clear vinyl copies and 250 compact disks - each will have a numbered obi band made from two-inch 24 track Stereolab master tape, only available from the Stereolab website.”
