Todd Terje - It's Album Time

The Norwegian producer Todd Terje is one of dance music’s most reliable makers of playful, innovative disco-house tracks, but he’s resisted the lure of making a full-on studio album until now. Terje’s debut LP, knowingly titled It’s Album Time isn’t just a string of singles. Instead, it has fun toying around with different genres and ideas for a few minutes at a time, moving from titanic thump to chintzy lounge music with a sort of arched-eyebrow flair. We’ve posted early tracks like the titanic Moroder pastiche “Delorean Dynamite” and “Johnny And Mary,” the Robert Palmer cover that features Bryan Ferry on vocals. And now you can stream the whole of It’s Album Time at NPR.

It’s Album Time is out 4/8 on the Terje’s own Olsen Records.

  1. Oooooooh, man. Take the rest of the day off and fix yourself a martini. This shit is fresh.

  2. Best dance album since Settle.

  3. I’m literally sitting in class right now and I’m about to close this window and go the fuck home and play this so loud. Sorry Dr. Haught.

  4. Ive needed a house record like this since John Talabot’s Fin. Outstanding tunes.

  5. Every time I see this album name I think it’s “It’s About Time” which could also be fitting I guess.

  6. I honestly don’t understand how anybody enjoys this. It is so monotonous and boring. I hate to fall into that “electronica isn’t real music” because their are some very talented producers, but this just sounds lazy and uninspiring.

  7. Oh wow! The vinyl is much better at 45rpm than 33rpm! Was getting bummed there for a minute… It’s martini time!!! OWWWOOOOOOOO!
