Tridact - Over The Clouds album
Tridact – Over The Clouds. Label: Internasjonal – INTTRIDACT12. Tridact or Brendon Johnson, has been putting together his mix of analog electronics and beats for some time. The album draws from influences ranging from ’60s pop to disco, house, techno and breakbeat to make a sound that reflects a distinctly Pacific Coast experience
Tridact - Tridact Prins Thomas reserves Full Pupp for the proggy, snaggletoothed disco from fellow Norwegians; the sound of sister hub Internasjonal, meanwhile, is more concise drifter's rock and coastal Californian fare. Consider it a kind of recovery rock for the night owl set, the balm for the after-burn. Tridact arrives amidst summer's quick fade, but it's the kind of seasonally-bound album that we just haven't seen so enough of this year. With Studio on what's increasingly looking like a permanent hiatus, Smalltown Supersound and Claremont 56 in relative silence and both PT and pal Lindstrom sucked into the black hole of the summer festival set, there seems to be a dearth of good beach-bum disco records this year (Terje's immaculate "Snooze 4 Love" an obvious exception).

To say that Oregon based musician Tridact has little previous pedigree, it s an impressive debut. Here's an interesting proposition: a debut album from a hitherto unknown American producer on Prins Thomas' globally-focussed Internasjonal imprint. To say that Oregon-based musician Tridact has little previous pedigree, it's an impressive debut. Fusing fuzzy old analogue synths (think Stereolab or vintage kraut rock) with Balearic guitar flourishes, lazy disco grooves and sprightly electronic melodies, it's a jolly and at times utterly joyful set (see "J24 at Sunset", "Cold Star" and "Over The Clouds").
