‘Lost’ is an apt title for Anders Trentemøller’s third album.
Showcasing a little black book of contacts including Low (on ‘The Dream’, below), The Drums’ Jonny Pierce and The Raveonettes’ Sune Rose Wagner, this collection is beautifully executed but stylistically restless.
The best moments come when the guests leave, with the low-slung standout instrumental ‘Still On Fire’ fusing ominous guitars and haunting Depeche Mode synths from their ‘Music For The Masses’ period.
Trentemøller’s studio chops are beyond question, but the results here suggest something of a new musical identity crisis.
