Old school rock dude Todd Rundgren releasing on the Norwegian Smalltown Supersound label? Something odd is afoot… Indeed, Runddans finds Rundgren collaborating with Hans-Peter Lindstrøm, of nu-disco fame, and Serena-Maneesh shoegazer Emil Nikolaisen. Good on him! The results are cosmic, psychedelic, soulful.

I could swear the record is straddling homage territory, and, at turns, I hear ghosts of "Shine", "International Feel", and more. Obviously, the two Norwegian contributors have a lot of input with the sequencing and production but, just like everything Todd touches, his trademark sound is all over it. If anything, they probably merged their respect for his back-catalog with a somewhat "follow-the-leader" mentality, because I've listened to efforts by both Lindstrøm and Serena-Maneesh, and this is unquestionably a Todd record, through and through.
