Album Review

Trentemoller – “Into The Great Wide Yonder” – [Inmyroom Records]

incognito   4/23/2013   A Library, CD


The second full length album from Danish composer/producer Anders Trentemoller is drastically different from his dancefloor releases and remixes – you won’t find saw-tooth basslines or pounding drums here – but that’s just fine. The album takes a moodier, more introspective approach, dabbling through garagy house, downtempo and ambient and collaborations with vocalists. There are even elements of surf here – once in the form of a dick dale-ish drum and bass tune, and several times with reverbed out, chris isaak styled downtempo guitars. If “The Last Resort” was a more mature side of Trentemoller, this is a logical continuation. A bit older, a bit darker, but still playful. I’d be surprised to hear any of this stuff played at a club, but it’s an absolute delight for bedroom listening.
