Seven minutes long and a criminally abrupt ending welcomes the return of Hans Peter Lindstrøm. Now, imagine you’re a Norweigan *ahem* nu-disco superstar and you’ve received some flack from the internet for a vocal album…. what do you do? You take some time out, make a new record and release a track called ‘De Javu’ onto the internets (not Deja Vu, right) that comes out fighting like a greek warrior, all DFA pounding drums and blazing analogue synths – a tight little number reminicisent of Yello. What Lindstrøm does here is a huge statement of intent, gone are the motions of dreamy travel to be replaced with a sense of urgency and on a technical level, absolute mastery of his craft.
