Lindstrøm – Tensions

Norwegian producer Lindstrøm will release his fifth solo album, It’s Alright Between Us As It Is, on October 20 via Smalltown Supersound. Pre-order here.

The album, presented as one continuous stream of nine interlocked tracks, shows Lindstrøm refining his love of arpeggiated synths, relentless uplifting beats, warm and steamy analogue bubble baths and ear-worm melodies.

Previously he shared the shimmery electronic pop of lead single Shinin featuring Grace Hall, one of three songs on the album with guest vocalists; the others feature Jenny Hval and Frida Sundemo. Now he has shared another song from the album, the near-7-minute long instrumental Tensions.

Based in Oslo, Lindstrøm has always made a virtue of his obsessive work ethic, turning his city centre studio into a factory floor for churning out monster tracks, then punching out regularly and going home to his family.

He’s collaborated with the likes of Todd Terje, Prins Thomas, and Todd Rundgren, remixed a slew of acts, including LCD Soundsystem, Lana Del Ray, Haim, Grizzly Bear, Flume, RAC, London Grammar, and more. On It’s Alright Between Us As It Is, he aggregates all the best elements of his long and varied career and newly reveals himself to be a commanding mood sculptor.
