Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas (10 Year Anniversary Reissue)

ESK 501428R ESK 501428R

2015 ten-year anniversary reissue of Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas's genre-defining 2005 debut album. Three 180-gram LPs in special-edition gatefold sleeve with download code and bonus 7" of previously unreleased material (including a 2015 edit of "Feel AM" by Prins Thomas). The Norwegian duo of Hans-Peter Lindstrøm and Thomas M. Hermansen aka Prins Thomas joined forces in 2003, after mutual admiration for each other's productions -- Lindstrøm as muso-wizard and Prins Thomas as the nu-skool remix-champ. They share a background in band projects -- ranging from punk and gospel through country and heavy metal to folk and psychedelia -- and they also share a passion for collecting records. Besides running their respective labels (Lindstrøm's Feedelity and Prins Thomas's Full Pupp) and working on various solo projects, their main priority is their joint venture into the ever-expanding outer limits of futuristic disko and universal boogie. Featuring Italo, funk, and disco-influenced productions alongside the production genius that defined those lost halcyon releases of the post-disco/punk era circa '78-'84, Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas provide lush basslines, sublime melodies, and rolling rhythms that cascade like snowflakes being hit by harsh early-morning sunlight -- icy, but with a heart bursting with pure emotion. Throughout one can find the experimental energy of the continental space-disco of the '80s, which the pair still adore -- melodic, synth-heavy, and Moroder-esque, with arpeggiated basslines set to proto-house 4/4 grooves. Wrap yourself in the basslines and melodies of Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas's sublime Norse code.
