Trentemøller Harbour Boat Trips - Copenhagen
Danish DJ Anders Trentemøller's travels have turned him into one of the most innovative and seasoned musicians of this generation. Compiling an impressively varied selection of music spanning the last four decades, the album responds to every impulse and intricacy of the human condition. The sounds of artists such as the Raveonettes doing a Joy Division cover are matched up with Trentmøller's synthscape of what it's like when "She's Lost Control." He sexes up and deepens the beat of Soft Cell's 1981 hit "Tainted Love" in a way that makes the classic tune sound new again. Touching on the mid-'90s hedonism of San Francisco alt-rock, Trentmøller delivers an impressive remix of the Brian Jonestown Massacre's "Anenome," an eerily haunting revisiting of dangerously bohemian lifestyles, but without the threat of overdose. The album looks to Caribou's lyrical wisdom with "Melody Day," a beautiful expression of acoustic meeting electronic via Four-Tet's vocal reconstruction. (HFN)
