This is the second album from jack-of-all-spades: Peder. Peder is known for releasing his debut on Ubiquity and working with the likes of Mo' Wax, Beastie Boys, The Prunes, Ninja Tune and DJ Krush. His music is a complex but well-balanced mix of soul-fueled electronic and bespoke indie pop for the new decade. "On Dirt & Gold I wanted to experiment. Do something that was both noisier and quieter, with many tempi, many singers, and many musicians. At the time everything I listened to was channeled onto the record," Peder says, and lists up names like Tom Waits, Nina Simone, Chet Atkins, Django Reinhardt, Ray Charles, etc. So you find surf guitar, hip-hop, French-sounding film music, Dracula-organ, ghost pop, 1980s-synth, and more on Dirt & Gold. Some of the results could easily appear on a very good upcoming Amy Winehouse release like "Love Lost City," featuring Oh Land, but there's more great input by the likes of Jacob Bellens, Claus Hemple, and Signe Marie Schmidt-Jacobsen. Asger Baden has been a close partner and co-composer and the lyrics are by Rasmus Olsen. Suitable for the many facets of the album, the tracks are generated individually between Peder's other projects -- in particular, film music in recent years and the other albums on Fake Diamond he's involved in. Thirteen tracks that melt together as one strong piece of music -- think Gonzales and Portishead meet in a Brooklyn drinking spot.
