Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Morning Show host John Richards, is
Moan by Trentemoller from the 2006 album The Last Resort on Poker Flat.
The Last Resort, released last year, was revisited in full force this year with a summer tour featuring live musicians. The creator, Anders Trentemoller, got his start in 1997 with partner DJ T.O.M., calling themselves Trigbag. Since then, Trentemoller has gone on to become the premiere DJ in Denmark. His forte involves bringing together beauty and the beast to arrive at lush, multifaceted and intelligent electronic music. Earlier this year, following tons of requests, the artist released The Trentemoller Chronicles, a career-spanning 2 CDs of his best remixes along with rare and unreleased tracks. He currently has no tour dates on the books but has been doing work with film and theater. As always, stay tuned to the artist’s MySpace page for updates and enjoy this video for “Moan” vocal remix featuring Ane Trolle:
