Rescued from old DAT tapes, A Strangeness In Motion: Early Pop Recordings 1989-1999 are some of Lundvall’s earliest completed synth pop works which have remained unreleased until now.
Though Lundvall’s work throughout A Strangeness In Motion: Early Pop Recordings 1989-1999 has the recognizable ambient bones and sensibilities he’s refined throughout his career, many of the tracks call back to the synth-driven pop of mid-late’80s Wire, Nine Circles, and New Order’s Movement, with the common thread being the sparse density and mood created by compression, depression, and the impulse to twist convention, not rip it up and repurpose it. Rather than 10 disparate ideas, Lundvall’s curation of A Strangeness In Motion: Early Pop Recordings 1989-1999 feels like excerpts from a broader work, allowing the listener to fill in the holes and ladder up to his larger themes and concepts, perhaps coloring his prior works in new hues and tones.
