Indie electronic began in the early 1990s, with bands like Stereolab and Disco Inferno, and took off in the new millennium as new digital technology developed, and music creation tools became more widely available. Stereolab's music combines a droning rock sound with lounge instrumentals, overlaid with sing-song female vocals and pop melodies. Their records are heavily influenced by the motorik technique of 1970s krautrock groups such as Neu! and Faust. Tim Gane has supported the comparison: "Neu! did minimalism and drones, but in a very pop way." This included acts such as Broadcast from the UK, Justice from France, Lali Puna from Germany, and The Postal Service and Ratatat from the US, who mixed a variety of indie sounds with electronic music. These were largely produced on small independent labels. In the case of Broadcast they are heavily influenced by the 1960s American psychedelic group The United States of America, using many of the same electronic effects.
