After going all prog-dance earlier this year with his third album ‘Six Cups Of Rebel’, Oslo’s Hans-Peter Lindstrøm has gone back to bubbly basics. Each of these six songs is named after a traditional Norwegian dish, and together they cook up
a satisfying if unadventurous snack. ‘Raakost’ (raw vegetables) is a dreamy analogue concoction, while ‘Eggedosis’ (something with eggs and sugar) features an obsessively circling synth. It’s a trick repeated twice too often here, less successfully on ‘Faarikal’ (lamb), but brilliantly on ‘Vafler’ (WAFFLES!), which burbles busily around its blissful spirals.
