TGW spins: Todd Terje

Hi, friends. This has been thoroughly pimped on Pitchfork for a couple weeks, including a Best New Album nod and review by Mike Powell, but it’s deliriously enjoyable and I wouldn’t mind knowing we were all giving it a spin. Count this as virtual record club, then. I hope you have something to say.

Here’s the full album:

And here’s a nice little video that may make you laugh, cry, and dance, possibly in that order but maybe in another, depending on your mood.

And here’s the track that hooked me, uncharacteristic of the rest of the album but home there nonetheless. With vocals by Bryan Ferry, it’s a Robert Palmer cover.

A little more background here.

    Well, now the pressure’s off to play the full album, since it’s been taken down from YouTube. But you can still tell me what you think about the video and the Bryan Ferry track!

    The video is hilarious. I’ve been watching a lot of Swedish detective shows on Netflix, but I had not seen this episode yet.

    Thanks for posting this Bryan. I came late to the Todd Terje party. Hadn’t really heard him till Matt Mondanile (Ducktails/Real Estate) mentioned him in his 2013 top ten list. Which sent me down a stupid rabbit hole. I love that dude in the Inspector Norse video. He is hilarious. And then I feel so sad for him. Like you said would happen.

    And also thanks for the streaming youtube link, I hadn’t heard the whole album yet. I only got one listen through it before youtube pulled it down–and I quite liked it, but the PF review w/ a very distinguished 8.7? Hmmm. I’ll have to try it again.

    I’ve so been that guy. Emotionally if not precisely chemically.

    I love that version of Johnny and Mary!

    Man isn’t it great? Here’s another collab with Bryan Ferry. They make a nice pairing.

    I read the “little more background” article and now I am confused. Can someone explain the difference between a disco edit and a remix?
