It’s Alright Between Us As It Is
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.
