Less than a year after his Six Cups of Rebel, Norway's Lindstrom returns with yet another album, his fourth, of brilliantly hued, prog-imbued, synth-soaked disco funk. Smallhans isn't quite as proggy as its predecessor, which could make Godley & Creme sound staid by comparison; its six tracks are more keenly focused on the dancefloor, with stabbing keyboard riffs and electro-funk bass over chunky machine grooves. At its most transcendent, it matches the offworld bliss of Lindstrom's "I Feel Space," re-imagining trance as an offshoot of Italo disco.
