Norwegian producer Hans-Peter Lindstrøm has created remixes of songs by countless artists, including LCD Soundsystem, Best Coast and Roxy Music. But the tables were recently turned on him when Todd Rundgren agreed to remix Lindstrøm's original track "Quiet Place To Live." "When speaking about possible remixers for the album with friend & partner in crime Prins Thomas, he suggested that I rather ask anybody special instead of the usual suspects," Lindstrøm says.

"When suggesting Todd Rundgren, I told him: 'Yeah that would have been awesome!,' but I THOUGHT that it was never gonna happen. However, when mentioning it to Joakim from smalltown, he told me that he was gonna give it a shot, since he already knew his management," Lindstrøm says. "Less than a week after, he agreed upon doing a remix of 'Quiet Place To Live' from my new album. I'm not aware of any other remixes he's done before, in which case this feels really special as Todd Rundgren's  music has been inspiring me a lot over the years."

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
