Dinner is Danish producer/singer Anders Rhedin. Following the release of his EP collection and 2016 debut LP Psychic Lovers, the now LA-based artist presents New Work on Captured Tracks. Rhedin enlisted Josh da Costa (Regal Degal, Ducktails) to produce the album with him. The pair worked in the nighttime at off-hours at a studio in an industrial part of downtown LA. The album's songs were recorded on the spot with no preparation time. In-between studio sessions, Rhedin recorded and overdubbed material in his apartment on an early 80's 4-track recorder.
The two previous Dinner releases were recorded in Berlin and Copenhagen with mostly European musicians. This isn't the case on New Work, which features performances by Andy White (Tonstartssbandht), Charlie Hilton (Blouse), Rori McCarthy (Infinite Bisous, Connan Moccasin), Staz Lindes (Paranoyds), and a duet with Sean Nicholas Savage."A lot of my favorite music is American," Anders explains. "I thought it would be fun to go a little bit less Euro on this one. I'm plenty Euro by myself, some might say. I wanted to add a different color."
Asked to describe the sound of New Work after the first listen, Captured Tracks owner Mike Sniper said: "Julian Cope, 60's Baroque Pop, early 70's Canterbury Sound, Japan, Ryuichi Sakamato, 'Raspberry Beret'-era Prince... Need to listen a few more times before anything concrete comes!"
