Mark Ronson – “I Can’t Lose (Lindstrøm Remix)” (Feat. Keyone Starr)

“Uptown Funk!” is great and all, but there’s a lot more than that to Mark Ronson’s laser-focused studio-pop album Uptown Special. One standout is “I Can’t Lose,” an expert piece of roller-rink pop that features the undiscovered R&B singer Keyone Starr. Ronson has now solicited a remix from Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, the Norwegian master of way-out… More »

Todd Rundgren, Emil Nikolaisen, & Hans-Peter Lindstrøm – “Put Your Arms Around Me (Stereolab/The High Llamas Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

I’m about to throw a lot of names at you, but bear with me, they’re all important and very, very cool in combination. Runddans is the project of Todd Rundgren (American classic rock legend), Emil Nikolaisen (frontman of Norweigan alt-rock band Serena-Maneesh), and Hans-Peter Lindstrøm (Norweigan producer and Todd Terje collaborator). Their debut release RunddansMore »

Stream Todd Rundgren, Emil Nikolaisen, & Hans-Peter Lindstrøm Runddans

It’s tempting to describe Lindstrøm’s music simply as the kind of electronic music that makes it into The New Yorker, who are premiering his collaborative album Runddans with Todd Rundgren and Emil Nikolaisen. That, however, requires its own set of knowledge concerning print publication hierarchies and electronic music signifiers, so it’s easier to note that… More »

Lindstrøm & Grace Hall – “Home Tonight” Video

Space-disco wizard Hans-Peter Lindstrøm is getting ready to release Runddans, his unlikely collaborative album with Todd Rundgren and Serena-Maneesh’s Emil Nikolaisen, but that’s not all he’s got going on. He just linked up with Skin Town singer Grace Hall for the excellently graceful dance single “Home Tonight.” And now we get a “Home Tonight” video… More »

Todd Rundgren, Emil Nikolaisen & Lindstrøm – “Put Your Arms Around Me”

Lately, an unlikely trio of studio wizards — ’70s rock mastermind Todd Rundgren, space-disco warlock Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, Serena-Maneesh guitar-mangler Emil Nikolaisen — has been working on a collaborative album called Runddans. The album comes out next month, and it plays out as an uninterrupted single song, though it’s separated up into different tracks. The grou… More »

Todd Rundgren, Lindstrøm, Emil Nikolaisen Announce Single Track Runddans LP

More than a year ago now, we learned that three very different studio rats were combining to form a deeply intriguing supergroup. ’70s smart-pop master Todd Rundgren, space-disco astral projectionist Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, and Serena-Maneesh shoegazer Emil Nikolaisen had joined forces to make an album called Runddans, and that was all we needed to know. Those… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

For all the fresh beefing we were made to endure this week, it’s nice to have the 5 Best Songs to help us remember why we listen to music in the first place. Musicians dissing each other is fun (and often very, very funny), but at the end of a long week, it’s about so… More »

Lindstrøm & Grace Hall – “Home Tonight”

The Norwegian space-disco master Lindstrøm has made some beautifully zoned-out instrumental music, but he’s often at his best when he’s working with a vocalist, pushing his astral Italo thumps toward something resembling pop music. On his new single “Home Tonight,” Lindstrøm joins forces with Grace Hall, singer for the L.A. bedroom-R&B duo Skin Town. Together,… More »

Say Lou Lou & Lindstrøm – “Games For Girls” Video

Last month, the Swedish/Australian duo Say Lou Lou linked up with Norwegian space-disco master Hans-Peter Lindstrøm for their “Games For Girls” single, a dizzy disco-pop nugget that really should’ve become a summer jam. The duo just unveiled the video for the song, in which they link up with director Dimitri Basil to play “pranks” around… More »

Say Lou Lou & Lindstrøm – “Games For Girls”

It’s always fun when Norwegian space-disco wizard Hans-Peter Lindstrøm emerges from his velvet-coated underground planetarium (which is where I imagine Lindstrøm lives) and gives us something that even vaguely resembles pop music. He’s now done that for Say Lou Lou, the Swedish/Australian festival-pop duo, teaming up with them on their new single “Games For Girls.”… More »

Todd Rundgren, Lindstrøm, & Serena-Maneesh Frontman Team Up For Album

Todd Rundgren is the Pennsylvania-born studio-rock wizard who helped define how American big-money rock music sounded in the 1970s. Hans-Peter Lindstrøm is the Norwegian space-disco producer whose burbling deep-groove tracks helped open dance music up to lusher and more psychedelic sounds in the mid-’00s. Emil Nikolaisen is the frontman of the Oslo shoegaze band Serena-Maneesh,… More »

Lindstrøm – “Vōs-sākō-rv” Video

From Norwegian space-disco dance producer Lindstrøm’s 2012 LP Smalhans comes “Vōs-sākō-rv,” and a video by filmmaker Kristoffer Borgli, who captures two gangly, ponytailed, Nordic swimmer-teens in the act of talking, dancing, spitting, and listening to Lindstrøm by a pool. There’s some dialogue that proceeds the teens’ revelry though it’s lost in translation — if you… More »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Rà-àkõ-st” (Lindstrøm Cover)

It shouldn’t be expected that Unknown Mortal Orchestra would be dolling out new tunes so quickly after the release of their excellent sophomore LP II and a lengthy tour with Foxygen and Wampire in support of it, but here we are. A cover may not necessarily count as new work, but when a rock band… More »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Swim And Sleep (Like A Shark) (Lindstrøm Remix)”

Swim And Sleep (Like A Shark)” from Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s recent LP II is quaint and lackadaisical, all clean riffs and soothsaying vocals. When Norway electronic luminary Lindstrøm takes it for a spin, it becomes an ecstatic dancefloor cut, with the same clarity, only via synths instead of guitar. It’s fun to imagine the saucy… More »

Charli XCX – “You (Ha Ha Ha) (Lindstrøm Remix)”

Lindstrøm’s remix of Charli XCX’s “You (Ha Ha Ha)” flips the original completely on its head. What was once a Gold Panda track-turned-pop song is now a thick electronic disco jam with chopped-and-chipmunked vocals and warped bass. Check it out below. More »

Grizzly Bear – “Gun-Shy (Lindstrøm Remix)”

Grizzly Bear have launched a brand new Tumblr, which they will be using for announcements and to preview and debut new material. Its debut includes GIFs of scenes from their upcoming video for “Gun-Shy,” as well as a remix of the track by Lindstrøm. Check out the remix and Grizzly Bear’s international tour dates below. More »

Lindstrøm & Todd Terje – “Lanzarote”

Norway’s Lindstrøm and Todd Terje link up for gauzy, disco-tinged track “Lanzarote.” The two have plans this year to tour together after a history of solos gigs to “try something new after many years of travelling alone.” The union is years in the making — in a recent interview with Resident Advisor, the pair said… More »

2012 In Review: The Year In Instrumental Music

In 1959, Ornette Coleman released The Shape of Jazz To Come, a record with content almost as audacious as its title. Forty-seven years later, Coleman at least partially fulfilled his own challenge with the fearless and fertile Sound Grammar. But even that 2006 effort might not have crossed jazz boundaries as much as one from… More »

Lana Del Rey – “Blue Velvet (Lindstrøm Remix)”

In an especially on-the-nose moment of Lynch-inspired marketing, Lana Del Rey covered Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris’s American standard “Blue Velvet” for an H&M ad campaign recently. And now the Norwegian space disco king Hans-Peter Lindstrøm has taken that cover and turned it into a 10-minute dance odyssey that only takes a few LDR sigh… More »

Stream Lindstrøm Smalhans

The Norwegian space-disco master Hans-Peter Lindstrøm has already released one album this year, the studio-pop experiment Six Cups Of Rebel. Next week, he drops his second full-length of the year. The new LP Smalhans returns Lindstrøm to the stretched-out Italo sound that brought him to the game, and we’ve already posted first single “Rà-àkõ-st.” The… More »
