I hadn’t heard of this LP until last week and yesterday the vinyl LP arrived at my door. I have been missing out on this genius for eight years! Annoyed at myself! I’d heard the title track played out in various sets before, but I could never say that I had given the time to all 28 minutes and 58 seconds of “Where You Go I Go Too”.
And boy what an almost 29minutes it is! Give it time and you will be rewarded. Wondering whether it’s acceptable to play is out in a set. Listen below, although much more satisfying at a higher quality.
This was Lindstrøm’s first studio album released in 2008 and could be labelled “space disco” but I’d put it more toward the ambient, psychedelic, downtempo side of this.
Production of the album followed the 2006 release of ‘It’s a Feedelity Affair’, a compilation of singles. Lindstrøm had become dissatisfied with simply producing remixes and average length songs, which led to experimentation with lengthy tracks. Lindstrøm also felt he was unwisely incorporating musical ideas into remixes instead of original works.
A special edition album released in 2008 featured a bonus disc with edited versions of the original tracks by frequent Lindstrøm collaborator Prins Thomas. I’m struggling to find this on digital, and it’s upsetting me.
