Lindstrøm XLR8R podcast

Get Lindstrøm's podcast



After running a podcast from fellow Norwegian space-disco maverick Diskjokke just two weeks ago, it might seem like it's a little soon to post an exclusive mix from Lindstrøm. However, while Diskjokke put together a solid, dancefloor-oriented DJ session, Lindstrøm has gone in a completely different direction. Rather than simply showing off all of the latest dubs or showcasing his limited-edition vintage gems, the veteran artist has assembled a diverse collection of tunes, and although it has not been officially tabbed as an "influences" mix, the varied styles on display—primarily late-'70s and early-'80s prog rock, psych, jangle pop, and disco—all reflect a small piece of the sound that has come to define Lindstrøm's artistic output. It's certainly not what we—or probably anyone, for that matter—would have expected from a Lindstrøm podcast, but it's certainly an interesting listen.
