Todd Terje & The Olsens share cover of Martin Denny/Yellow Magic Orchestra’s “Firecracker” from new EP
Todd Terje & The Olsens have shared “Firecracker” from their upcoming EP The Big Cover Up. To refresh, these are the first recordings Todd has made with his ace live band, and it’s four cover songs, plus remixes for each. “Firecracker” was originally by Martin Denny & Yellow Magic Orchestra which is a perfect exotica/disco hybrid for The Olsens to tackle. Stream it (and the original for compare/contrast purposes) below.
As mentioned, Todd Terje & The Olsens will be at a big NYC party called “No Bad Days” which happens July 29 at 1260 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn with fellow Norwegians Lindstrøm and Jaga Jazzist (who play LPR the day before). Tickets are on sale now.
Updated tour dates are listed, along with song streams, below.
