Lindstrøm



Norwegian "contemporary disco" artist Lindstrøm´s new album "On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever" is out 11 October on LP, CD and digital on Smalltown Supersound.

He cites Robert Wyatt as an inspiration for this album, so check out the track "Deep snow", or wait for the full album to hear if you recognize some Wyatt vibes in there! Pre- order on Bandcamp.

"On A Clear Day I Can See You Forever (a title inspired by the 1970’s musical On A Clear Day You Can See Forever starring Barbra Streisand). “I’ve listened to Robert Wyatt’s solo albums and his Matching Mole’s debutalbum a lot lately. It so effortless, fearless and free. And not insisting. I was very inspired by this”.

Pierre Bastien and Robert Wyatt

Pierre Bastien is doing the "Invisible Jukebox" in The Wire no.426 (August 2019), the column where a musician is trying to recognise or guess what is being played.

After hearing "Cuckoo Madame" he recognises Robert Wyatt and starts telling about an installation they made together for the Bienale de Lyon in 2001. Robert sent a cassette and P.B. selected "Locomotive Song" ("It was easy to make an orchestration for that with my mechanical machines").

Finally the installation was sold to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, where it is kept in the archives.
