7/10 Clinton Staff review, 04 April 2014

Played it in its entirety yesterday yet its here on the pile this morning. “Have you STILL not reviewed it?” cried Li’l Biz. Nope, nope I have been putting it off.

First up its on 45RPM so don’t play it all on 33RPM like we did yesterday. Secondly, what is it? I’m not sure really. Its a collection of musics by Oslo disco champ Todd Terje and it veers all over the place. Struggling to get a handle of what he’s up to and why. There is one star turn on the record and thats from Bryan Ferry on a so-so cover of the much loved Robert Palmer ballad ‘Johnny and Mary’ (Ferry’s payment? One tailored gentleman’s suit, Saville Row), but that track is an anomaly, the rest is synthy bloopy disco jams, a bit of Air one minute, Royksopp the next then bits of skiddle-de-bap, latino funk frenzy just because...well...why not?

Terje has not rushed into this record,releasing it a mere 10 years after his debut single, time spent presumably growing his preposterous beard. When he gets it right he delivers spellbinding joyful balearic house gems such as ‘Delorean Dynamite’ which sweeps along in a rush of 80’s synths and funky guitars. Heavy nods to the Jacksons here; Michael circa ‘Thriller’ and Joe circa ‘Stepping Out’. Its playful; ‘Alfonso Muskedunder’ references 60’s library music, latin funk and Easy listening moving along at a blistering pace, ‘Swing Star’ a mass of curdled 80’s bloops. Fun for a while but wouldn’t want to be there for the hangover.
