Dancing w/o gravity

129. Lindstrøm - "I Feel Space" (Feedelity, 2005)

What's your favorite song by any of the acts performing today at the Pitchfork Music Festival, you ask? Well that's easy, kids, it's Hans=Peter Lindstrøm's now classic space disco anthem "I Feel Space". It's all obvious sci-fi signifiers + obvious balearic signifiers (the hand percussion bit, I mean, mostly) and it's just so beautiful at putting those together that it's still probably the easiest thing to play for people to demonstrate what I like about this kind of music. So let me play it for you, dear reader.
