Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, ‘Reinterpretations’ (Eskimo)

By: SPIN Staff // August 24, 2007

In addition to remixing LCD Soundsystem and Franz Ferdinand, producers Hans-Peter Lindstrom and Thomas M. Hermansen are leaders of the stoner-friendly “space disco” movement. And though their 2005 debut was flaccid like too-smooth jazz, that’s quickly remedied here, with the original tracks tweaked to propulsive, tantric lengths. Seventies’ spaceballs Boney M and kraut-rock legends Can (“Mighty Girl”) get name-checked en route to the mind-expanding epic “Nummer Fire En.” Piling on congas, ray-gun squiggles, pianos, and infinite drum kicks, the pair stop at nothing to shoehorn the cosmos into their platform moon boots.
