AllMusic[1]

Miss Modular is a 1997 EP by the post-rock band Stereolab. The title track served as the lead single from their album Dots and Loops.[2] It was produced in collaboration with the group Mouse on Mars.[3] Dan the Automator remixed the title track.[4]

All four of its tracks were re-released on the Oscillons from the Anti-Sun compilation.

Critical reception[edit]

AllMusic wrote: "Digitally assembled from isolated studio elements, the aptly titled 'Miss Modular' is musique concrète pop, a bubbly yet plainly synthetic effort that walks the tightrope between art and artifice."[1]
