Featured Todd Terje stories

Tom’s out in California surrounded by floral headbands and bros with GoPros over at Coachella this weekend, so I’m helping him out with this week’s roundup. While I’m sure that Rihanna’s “American Oxygen” video made some kind of stab at a political statement and was probably really nice looking, I didn’t watch it in time… More »

Music is a messy thing. There’s too much of it, too many genres, too many ideas, for anyone to make sense out of all of it — or even to hear all of it. The idea of imposing a narrative on 365 days of music, of making sense of a whole year, is a fool’… More »

Los Angeles’ FYF Fest was one of the more stylistically diverse festivals of the year. Its lineup blended major headliners (Phoenix, the Strokes, HAIM) with some of the best electronic musicians in the world (Flying Lotus, Todd Terje, Four Tet), and managed to throw in some choice heavier stuff (Boris, Deafheaven), hip-hop (Earl Sweatshirt, Ru… More »

Todd Terje – “Johnny And Mary” (Feat. Bryan Ferry) Video

On last year’s album It’s Album Time, Norwegian producer Todd Terje brought in Bryan Ferry, the former Roxy Music frontman and current avatar of old-world rock-star cool, to sing on a synthy, melancholic cover of Robert Palmer’s “Johnny And Mary.” Now director Brantley Gutierrez has made a stately black-and-white video for the Terje/Ferry version of… More »

Jaga Jazzist – “Oban (Todd Terje Remix)”

The way-out Norwegian jazz octed Jaga Jazzist is coming back later this year with a new album called Starfire; we’ve already posted the title track.

Todd Terje – “Alfonso Muskedunder” Video + Alfonso Muskedunder Remixed EP

Last year Norwegian DJ and disco-house producer Todd Terje released his first cohesive record, the aptly titled It’s Album Time. Since he’s also well-known for adopting a playful, cartoonish aesthetic, it’s no surprise that today’s video for “Alfonso Muskedunder” is an escalating, comedic trip through animated worlds. Terje worked with two consistent collaborators for the… More »

Todd Terje – “Delorean Dynamite” Video

When crafting the live visuals to accompany his It’s Album Time anthem “Delorean Dynamite,” Norwegian producer extraordinaire Todd Terje sought out Frank, a fellow Norwegian who happened to own a Delorean. So when Frank decided to sell the car, Terje and director Espen Friberg decided to make him an advertisement. Thus, the “Delorean Dynamite” video… More »

Todd Terje – “Leisure Suit Preben” Video

Earlier this week, the Norwegian disco-house producer Todd Terje released his knowingly silly debut LP It’s Album Time, and now he’s shared a video for “Leisure Suit Preben,” an album track.

Stream Todd Terje It’s Album Time

The Norwegian producer Todd Terje is one of dance music’s most reliable makers of playful, innovative disco-house tracks, but he’s resisted the lure of making a full-on studio album until now. Terje’s debut LP, knowingly titled It’s Album Time isn’t just a string of singles. Instead, it has fun toying around with different genres and… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Pretty much everything east of the Mississippi has been brought to its knees by this unforgiving winter, especially the hellstorm that rolled in this week.

Todd Terje – “Spiral” & “Q”

Disco and house savant Todd Terje dropped a new single today via his usual stomping ground, Olsen Records. “Spiral” and “Q” are sprawling and dense pieces of dance music that both stretch past the 10-minute mark, though Terje makes it so easy to get lost in them that it always seems shorter. Listen to both… More »

After three years of experiencing non-Nordic winters, Stereogum made a triumphant return to the land of Olso cold and classic, icy, YouTube-able slip-and-falls last week as I made the transatlantic trek from Brooklyn to Norway for by:Larm 2013. Actually, in 2010, Scott and Brandon’s trip was marked by debilitating weather; last week, Oslo’s snow wa… More »

Lindstrøm – “Rà-àkõ-st”

The Norwegian space-disco master Hans-Peter Lindstrøm has already released one album this year: Six Cups Of Rebel, a weird detour into proggy studio-pop. But he’s already planning another one, and if first single “Rà-àkõ-st” is any indication, it’ll be a serious return to form. The track’s extended version is nearly nine minutes of toothy Italo… More »
