Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, 'II' (Eskimo)

Critical Mass
Label:

by SPIN Staff

For their second collaboration, nü-disco producers Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas don't really tweak their debut's formula -- melodic lines still morph and hypnotize like lava lamps. With the synth pulsars and drum-kit palpitations of "Rothaus" and "Rett På," and the slow crest of opener "Cisco," the duo amalgamate their strengths (though "For Ett Slikk Og Ingentining" wallows too long in what sounds like the piano coda to "Layla"). II feels like the dance-music equivalent of a compost heap: warm, organic, funky, but a tad squishy.

Listen: Lindstrøm and Prins Thomas, "Rothaus (Groove Edit)"
