Cosmic house. After a slight misstep with Six Cups of Rebel, your favorite Norwegian is back with more warm, cosmic house. This is back to the classic Lindstrøm sounds where all synthesizers are striving towards some über-cosmic peak, everything is staccato, and the good times never stop. Extremely funky and a very easy listen. |
Try: 1, 2, 4, 5 FCC: Clean
1) 6:33 * Dramatic opener. A funky 80s beat and synthesizer interplay. Sounds like the soundtrack to a cheesy driver/detective movie, and I mean that in the best possible way.
2) 4:31 * Stuff flying left and right. Staccato main synth line and some flailing high pitch synth noises dance a happy dance. Very tight production and a cosmic feel.
3) 5:14 * Waves of electronic bliss. Repetitive synth patterns ascend and descend over and over again. Brilliantly crafted and, once again, a warm and spacey production from the cold north.
4) 5:19 * Cheeky melody with the same staccato synth tools. Goes all cacophonic a little over halfway through, only to return to the same funky groove again. A feel-good experience all the way through.
5) 6:24 A little more hesitant. The synths are still trickling along, but the bass line is not quite as focused this time. A little too formulaic.
6) 5:53 We’re back to the movie soundtrack theme. Extremely 80s cop-movie feel (yes, that is a thing). More staccato synths with some kind of deep drone in the back and something that sounds like sirens.
