'II' is the very recent release from Oslo duo Hans-Peter Lindstrom and Thomas Moen Hermansen (aka Prins Thomas).... and it's wicked.

(via bloglounge)

Pitchfork says:
"Mellow, smooth, relaxing: In traditional pop music lingo, these are euphemisms for "boring as hell". But traditional pop music lingo never got around to anticipating the downtempo, prog-infused strain of house music that eventually became generally known as space disco..... You can kind of imagine the ingredients for this album coming from a number of different sources-- prog rock, krautrock, disco, funk, MOR pop, maybe even some folk here and there-- but at this point there's just so much potential influence it's hard not to hear the whole instead.  And it's a hell of a lot of whole too: it's mellow and smooth and relaxing, sure, but it's also unpredictable and full of little revelations and turns of sound that make it one of space disco's crowning recent achievements"

Promise me you'll listen.  And the cover art?  Relevant.
