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… 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… 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… 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 date… 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… 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… 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."… More »

Lindstrøm – “Ęg-gęd-ōsis (Lemonade Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

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 »

Movement Electronic Music Festival 2012 In Photos

Over the long weekend Detroit hosted the Movement Electronic Music Festival, an event that featured people like Public Enemy, Major Lazer, SBTRKT, Araabmuzik and many more in the city's Hart Plaza. Chris Atto was there to document. This gallery's a little more scenery-heavy than usual, which is because some of the images make… More »

Smalltown Supersound will release a 12'' containing remixes of tracks from Lindstrøm's recent LP Six Cups Of Rebel, and first up is Oneohtrix Point Never's ethereal remix of "Call Me Anytime."

Todd Rundgren Remixes Lindstrøm

Norwegian space-disco king Hans-Peter Lindstrøm has a new album called Six Cups Of Rebel coming next week; we've already posted his track "De Javu." And in something of a coup, he's recruited a very special remixer to come in and rework the album track "Quiet Place To Live": '70s studio-rock master Todd Rundgren. Talking… More »

Roxy Music – “Avalon (Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas Version)”

Songs and remixers don't often pair off this perfectly. As a production duo, Norwegian dance dudes Hans-Peter Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas specialize in a luxuriant, champagne-dipped form of exotica-informed space-disco. And Roxy Music's mighty 1982 track "Avalon" feels like the most expensive piece of chiffon-lined synth-rock ever recorded. So, naturally, the new Lindstrøm… More »

120 Days – “Dahle Disco”

The Norwegian band 120 Days generated some serious buzz in 2006, when they released a strong self-titled debut full of pulsing krautrock grooves, but they've been largely missing in action since then. Suddenly, though, the band is back from the abyss, with a new album called II arriving in March. Below, you can download the… More »
