If modern music is leaving you famished, Lindstrom’s Smalhans LP is here to satiate your desires with chordated twists and turns. Released a mere six months after the experimental Six Cups Of Rebel, this dancefloor-oriented back-to-roots reduction peppers us with six servings of silky tech-funk disco.
Rà-àkõ-st starts healthily giving us what amounts to raw vegetables that I find quite tasty. This is a relaxing endeavor, slow in pace, welcoming you to sit down before enjoying some heavier flavors. Next we get treated some dried salted lamb with Lāmm-ęl-āār. It flutters from the driving lead to the airy breakdown, quite the bubbly and energetic affair. Vōs-sākō-rv, or sheep-sausage from Voss, is vertigo-inducing at first. The analog pad climbs to dizzying heights, building up bit by bit before casting loose and whirling upwards in a corkscrew before the tight crescendo brings everything to a sudden halt. This smooth, intuitively crafted release will continue to delight the ears of those that hear it time and time again. Pick up the Smalhans LP from iTunes here.
