It’s Al­right Between Us As It Is

Small­town Su­per­sound

Future Music - - REVIEWS - Tom Jones

Five years on from his last record, Nor­we­gian space disco ex­traor­di­naire Han-Peter Lind­strøm is back with his shim­mer­ing, up­beat fifth stu­dio al­bum as Lind­strøm. It’s Al­right Between Us As It Is finds the Oslo na­tive heavy on cos­mic, glit­ter­ing disco vibes once again. Full of up­beat en­ergy and warm ana­logue sounds, the al­bum is a con­tin­u­ous mix of nine tracks, tak­ing us on a club-fo­cused, polyrhyth­mic and di­verse ex­cur­sion across many of the gen­res that have in­spired Lind­strøm through­out his ac­claimed ca­reer. Cross­ing bound­aries between 70s synth disco, sparkling house, re­fined techno, cos­mic elec­tron­ica, jazz and Balearic, It’s Al­right Between Us As It Is is a heady con­coc­tion of arpeg­giated synths, warm and melodic basslines, soul­ful melodies and rest­less and shuf­fling beats. Steamy, balmy at­mos­pheres rise up through­out as ana­logue synths swirl and sub­lime chords chug away to build mo­men­tum. Soul­ful, eu­phoric, warm, up­beat and bristling with soft light, this is Lind­strøm at his ex­pan­sive, joy­ous and flaw­less best.
