Avant-pop stalwarts Stereolab may not have released a new album since 2008, but that didn’t stop lovers of indie music from going giddy at the announcement that the English-French band would tour the U.S. this fall.

The tour, which coincides with the band’s yearlong, seven-album remastered reissue series, follows up a hugely successful European run and will bring Stereolab to San Antonio for the first time. The show is already sold out, of course, but you may have luck finding tickets through StubHub.

Since its 1990s start, Stereolab has kept its sound a state of evolution, drifting from hazy krautrock cabaret to glitchy, loopy and experimental jazz-pop. The band’s music remains enduring and influential because it’s complex and forward thinking without being intellectual. The chance to experience its innovative approach live may be worth the hassle of finding the tickets.

$30-$32, Thursday, Sept. 19, 7:30pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com.
