Best 70s bachelor pad album: Todd Terje, It’s Album Time
It’s Album Time is Norwegian electro-disco at its finest. Despite Todd Terje’s proclivity for hopping from one influence to another—he evokes surf, ’70s disco, shag carpets, jazz, ’80s Miami clubs, and techno across the album’s 12 tracks—there’s an easy confidence and cohesion to the entire record. Remarkably, it’s both easy-listening background music and a rewarding deep listen, at times a nod to past eras, as well as a slight pastiche. So many electronic albums are satisfied with just regurgitating the past; It’s Album Time intelligently engages with it, re-contextualizing and re-tooling familiar sounds alongside Terje’s playful aesthetic.

I bought this album after reading this review once and not hearing a single song from it. I’m on my second listen now, and yeah, outstanding.

I loved this. It’s too bad Veep tried to ape this and failed.

I haven’t finished the third season yet, but I can’t lie, I love Veep.

(Primarily because Julia Louis-Dreyfus owns it.)
