Lindstrøm heads out on US tour... like an astronaut!!!!!!!!!! Oneohtrix Point Never and Owen Pallett remixes on the way too

Sun Ra once said that space is the place. Most likely, he said it because he really liked space and also because it rhymed. However, some theorize that Sun Ra was, in fact, speaking prophecy. By these readings, Sun Ra spoke of the birth of a man, the sort of man who would lead electronic disco into a new cosmic realm. Unfortunately, Sun Ra was completely wrong on these matters, as Hans-Peter Lindstrøm (or, you know, just plain Lindstrøm) was actually born in Norway, instead of space. Sorry, Sun Ra, maybe next time! Oh wait, you’ve been dead for nearly 20 years. Sorry, Sun Ra’s ghost, maybe next time!

Forget Sun Ra for a minute. (But how could you???) Whether he’s born in Space or Norway or a third location, Lindstrøm does make a good bit of electronic disco that sounds like it at least hangs out in space a lot. He even put out a new record of that stuff called Six Cups of Rebel earlier this year. Now, he’s planning on doing a quick run of US dates, probably all at former space shuttle launching pads. Or just regular venues. Beyond that, his work should be subject to remix from artists like Owen Pallett, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Rub N Thug later this year. No more info on when and how those remixes will materialize, nor do I have any info on who Rub N Thug is. I could probably fix that pretty easily, though.
