Vinyl LP pressing. 2010 solo album from the Stereolab/Monade vocalist. Laetitia has been performing her new songs at solo live shows with just voice and electric guitar, but for the Trip she packed a band sound, with musical collaborators including Americans Rebecca Gates, Richard Swift and April March and French musicians Julien Gasc and Emmanuel Mario (who also collaborated on the final Monade album Monstre Cosmic). The band sound was conceived with a spare touch in mind. It was Laetitia's intention not to 'overload or layer' the music on the new record too much.
