Last time we heard from Lindstrøm, he was being remixed by THE Todd Rundgren for an 12” of album track “Quiet Place to Live.” More remixes for digital and vinyl release are forthcoming from such notables as Owen Pallett, Oneohtrix Point Never and Rub N Thug.
Six Cups of Rebel sees Lindstrøm take an unexpected sharp left turn from the production style people expect from him. Check out the Agit Reader interview for more insight and mixes Lindstrøm did for The Quietus and Yours Truly.
“Lindstrøm’s Six Cups of Rebel finds the Swedish producer indulging in maximal cosmic-disco machinations, with dazzling results. The lavish production style approaches some of the extravagances of prime ’70s prog rock; the opening track, ‘No Release,’ for instance, rivals Vangelis and Mike Oldfield for spine-tingling suspensefulness and grandiose melodiousness. And ‘Call Me Anytime’ is as mind-bogglingly complex as anything on an early-’70s Yes or Gentle Giant LP.”- The Stranger
“…[Lindstrøm] treats sounds like the final frontier, always searching the far corners of his musical influences and his imagination, and pouring the discoveries into his epic productions.” - Time Out Chicago
“…synth-driven grooves that feel communal and cosmic at the same time…” - SPIN
“Lindstrøm’s songs sound more infused with the heartbeat of a live band than ever before. He draws bright lines between his own familiar disco territory and the parallel universe of ‘70s funk.” - Coke Machine Glow
