The 50 Best Albums Of 2014

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 »

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 »

Todd Terje (Feat. Bryan Ferry) – “Johnny And Mary” (Robert Palmer Cover)

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… 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 Top 30 Electronic Dance Tracks Of 2012

There was no getting away from EDM in 2012. While the three-letter hashtag has certainly caused buzz among radio stations and indie blogosphere alike, it's been a big year for dance on and off of the pop charts.

Hot Chip – “How Do You Do (Todd Terje Remix)”

Hot Chip's breezy disco jam "How Do You Do" is one of the purest moments of pleasure on their new album In Our Heads. And now they've stretched that moment out into infinity, recruiting Scandinavian space-disco master Todd Terje to give the song a dizzy dance odyssey of a remix. The Terje remix last… 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 »
