Lindstrøm: Where You Go I Go Too (cover) (190x190)Favourable Pitchfork review for Lindstrøm’s latest

Publisert: 08/25/2008 av Tomas Lauvland Pettersen


Electronica maestro Lindstrøm receives a strong Pitchforkmedia.com review for his first proper studio album, ‘Where You Go I Go Too’.

This week sees Pitchforkmedia.com awarding Lindstrøm a strong 8,6 review for his first proper studio album, the already acclaimed ‘Where You Go I Go Too’ out now on Smalltown Supersound.

Writes Pitchforkmedia.com’s Tim Finney: Stretching three tracks over 55 minutes and occasionally wandering far away from the dancefloor, Where You Go I Go Too has all the hallmarks of a masterpiece from a reclusive auteur. And while it shares its bloat, excess, and splendour with any number of cosmic disco or Balearic producers at the more decadent end of disco revivalism, it begs for a context more weighty than “disco revivalism”. Paradoxically, Lindstrøm knows all the right moves to give his own brand of spacey disco an air of transcendence, but the result feels so effortless that his facsimile and the “real thing” become indistinguishable – a fake so real it’s beyond fake.
