Lindstrom & Prins Thomas are the shit

Thought these guys deserved their own thread, there seems to be only a little discussion of them here.

So who else is really feeling these guys lately? "I Feel Space" seems to only be the tip of the iceberg, like Primal Scream's "Loaded", pre-Screamadelica. Between the new album on Eskimo, the "Tribulations" remix and the new Six Cups of Rebel (Lindstrom), dudes are killin it. i'm listening to Six Cups now and the willingness to just let it go plus the production, the instrumentation are so freeing to me. The album sounds like a disco-fied Neu! at times and this whole krautrock vibe is a direction i would love to see this going in. I find myself more than willing to go where they're taking me. Further blowing me away is the PT remix of Mental Overdrive's "Diskodans" on Smalltown Supersound (which needs to be released on vinyl right now, god damn it) - mindblowing 9 minute uptempo mix, just filthy with effects - and Lindstrom's "Plague the Kid II" on Bear Entertainment.

Now I've heard Lindstrom's previous work under the Slow Supreme moniker, and i've enjoyed and even spun out a couple of his tracks. but this, this is different.

who's wit me?!

I've only heard "I Feel Space", but it's my favorite house track in months.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 26 August 2005 06:35 (10 years ago) Permalink

what's the deal with the new album on eskimo? i remember hearing about it a few months ago, but nothing more. but everything else i've heard by them is indeed the shit. "there's a drink in my bedroom and i need a hot lady" especially.

Lindstrom/Prins Thomas remix of Juan Maclean 'Tito's Way' is awesome in a Disco-Prog kind of way.

their remixes of Chicken Lips "Sweet Cow" and the Freeform Five's "Electromagnetic" are very good too.

1 Lindstrøm - "Paaskelyd"
2 Lindstrøm - "Er Bestemor Paa Moten"
3 Blackbelt Andersen Vs Prins Thomas - "Juling i Ringen"
4 Lindstrøm - "Drums of Life"

Lindbaek And Lindstrom: Alien In My Pocket is one of my favorites. I had no idea there was an album in the works, I can't wait to hear it.

jeffery (jeffery), Friday, 26 August 2005 14:12 (10 years ago) Permalink

the album is fantastic, if not as uptempo and fully dancefloor as, say, Thomas' Major Swellings album that was released recently on Noid with the Idjut Boys. Listened to as a whole, it's a superb trip through a more laidback vibe. loving loving loving it. it's due out within another month or so - i got solicited on it maybe a month ago and that was way way in advance. question for someone more knowledgeable: is this the same album that was released in japan earlier in the year?

if the tribulations remix link is still active in the most recent YSI thread, go download it immediately. the bit in the middle where the distorted vocal starts stuttering and then the beat drops underneath is fucking devastating.

i hope there are plans to repress bits and pieces like 'alien in my pocket' because i NEED them. i'm in full lindstrom obsession mode at this point!

i should say the tracks they've remixed instead of "their own tracks". i don't think i've heard any of their original stuff. from their set, the remix of Manuel Gottsching - E2-E4 is super.

maurice fulton - yes, but not MU, you should start w/ "life is water for gerbadaisies..." (recorded as "maurice fulton presents boof") and the album recorded as "maurice fulton presents stress"). also maurice's remixes.

possibly the earlier faze action ... anything before moving cities, really. also look for ray mang's work.

some of the artists on bunker and creme. a lot of it is lo-fi techno, so you sort of have to pick and choose but there's quite a bit of loose-limbed italo funk in there.

God, there's a mix of "Sueno Latino" I've never found on CD that's the same as most of the original mixes but has this electric guitar solo in the middle of it that just sounds incredible (and still Mediterranean).

Emperor Machine "Bloody Hell" is my favourite of theirs.

Also check out Padded Cell on Suicide Recordings, they've done a few remixes here and there too. Very good stuff.

Ronan (Ronan), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:21 (10 years ago) Permalink

the lindstrom / prins tomas lp on eskimo is very down tempo / jazz funk. i think they felt it should be an albu for listening to rather than a set of club tracks.

lindstrom tends to have two sides to his sound - the tripped out space disco and the noodly muso side. the 'i feel space' 12' demonstrates this to a t (which incidentally he recorded four years ago).

he has a forthcoming 12' coming called 'serious syntoms' which is the rawest thing he's ever done. endlessly repeating, slighty modulating moog bassline, live snare and hi hat and a bit of arp synth. sounds like it was recorded live in one take. mega.

i spent a very drunken night out with prins thomas recently and i get the impressiont that what we have heard so far is only the tip of the iceberg. mad, as they both have families and other jobs to keep them busy too.

i listened to (what i think is) the e2-e4 section again last nite from the set...its hard to say where it begins or ends - I think he's weaving other songs in and out - or perhaps its just a short snippet.

anyway, "Call Me Mr. Telephone"-- is awesome if folks haven't heard. They seems to be heavily influenced by 70's rock but not in a gimmicky way??? he goes kinda fleetwood mac in the middle of that song but its totally nice.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Friday, 2 September 2005 16:35 (10 years ago) Permalink

it was all p cool but it is the first mix i've paid for (as opposed to it being shared freely) in years and years, and there are so many better free mixes this year in which i discovered more music.

japanese mage (LocalGarda), Thursday, 17 December 2015 09:28 (6 months ago) Permalink

PT's "Live at the Robert Johnson" is definitely more techno-heavy, and comes highly recommended. Paradise Goulash is really good but doesn't quite cohere in the way Cosmo-Galactic Prism did, but then again the latter is all-time

The Male Gaz Coombes (Neil S), Thursday, 17 December 2015 09:46 (6 months ago) Permalink

Yeah I feel like if you're going to actually sell a mix these days it has to justify being onsale. That either means being way better than the sort of thing you'd give to RA or a blog or something for free, or it has to feel more considered, or definably a bit more like an album. DJs like Mayer and Weatherall are consistently good at this, but I think the whole randomness of Prins's approach makes this more difficult, especially when there are jobbing Balearic guys whacking really good free mixes up every week.

I dunno, I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to commercial v free mixes. I like decent sound quality, I like being able to see artist names and track titles, I like the implied permanence of a really good mix album, otherwise I'd rather just listen to a live recording or radio set. Doesn't help that there's just this enormous glut of free mixes out there and they're quite a time investment given that, unless you know the DJ, you don't know what you're getting into at the start.

Matt DC, Thursday, 17 December 2015 09:48 (6 months ago) Permalink

you just have to start using soundcloud in the right way, then the good free mixes will flow like wine

it's the same as anything, a bit of nosing around, following some known djs, seeing who they follow. i tend to crave mixes at work though so i get through a lot. you do discover v good djs who aren't really well known.

japanese mage (LocalGarda), Thursday, 17 December 2015 09:55 (6 months ago) Permalink

I find Soundcloud quite an annoying interface to use, I can see why people like it but I find dutifully clicking through web interfaces (Soundcloud or Youtube or whatever) to be a really joyless way of listening to music. I'm looking at it now and there are like 14 Lord of the Isles mixes staring at me, it feels like homework and I can't be arsed.

I can't really listen at work, so any mixes I do listen to will be on my commute, and that's premium listening/reading space. Maybe I should make a new space, like incorporate techno cooking into my life or something.

That Michael Rother really is brilliant - there's a real clarity and sunniness to it, feels like such a good driving album as well as an ambient one. Like it's sort of midway between Kraftwerk and Dire Straits in its melodic sense.

Matt DC, Monday, 15 February 2016 10:34 (4 months ago) Permalink

yeah i went for a walk in the park yesterday and listened to it, it was very sunny and i quickly felt in a kind of transcendental mood. dire straits otm, there were parts where i was imagining how good it would be with singing, but probably better without overall. it's very strange, sort of goettsching standard procedure and then these pristine guitar "choruses".

must try some of his other stuff.

japanese mage (LocalGarda), Monday, 15 February 2016 10:39 (4 months ago) Permalink

TBH every time I listen to a Dire Straits song that isn't Romeo and Juliet I never actually enjoy it, like it never lives to the platonic ideal of Dire Straits that I've built up in my head. But there's something about the pristine Knopfler-esque guitar sound I love when I hear it in other contexts (probably why I still love The War On Drugs despite their inherent corniness).

Anyway back to Michael Rother, you hear a lot of those guitar textures all over Prins's solo work, and the melodies are all over Lindstrom's stuff. The first track on Where You Go I Go Too definitely feels like it's consciously channeling this record.

Remixes incoming

https://soundcloud.com/smalltownsupersound/prins-thomas-cicube-remix

Smalltown Supersound will release three remix EPs based off Prins Thomas's Principe Del Norte album.

That record, released last week, saw the cosmic Norwegian producer looking back to the the '90s 'braindance' movement for inspiration, specifically ambient works by The Black Dog, The KLF and The Orb. The latter legends are among the heavy-hitters who contribute versions of Principe Del Norte for the upcoming three-part set.

Minimal star Ricardo Villalobos will also contribute two remixes of "C," and Young Marco, I:Cube and Sun Araw, the Californian psychedelic rocker who appeared on Thomas's epic Paradise Goulash mix, have been tapped for reworks too. Hieroglyphic Being starts off the series with a 12-inch featuring his two takes on album track "D."

The Hieroglyphic Being versions will be available next month, with a release date for the second EP, featuring the Villalobos, Young Marco and I:Cube remixes, yet to be announced. Full details on the 12-inch with Sun Araw and The Orb's submissions are still forthcoming.

X-post re. the Michael Rother record, check out "Katzenmusik 8" – the one w all the reverse guitars. To me that's the platonic ideal right there.

Finally getting around to listening to Principe Del Norte. One or two dud sides but overall a great listen. Did anyone buy the LP set? I'm a little burned out on having that much wax and after getting Paradise Goulash.

Yeah I did get the 4LP set but then I only bought the Paradise Goulash Versions on wax
