Scheduled for April via his very own imprint In My Room is Anders Trentemöller's next strike, a tiny little 7" piece once again featuring the vocal talents of Marie Fisker, this time serving a dark'ish and extremely hypnotic re-work of The Gun Club's 1984 released "My Dreams", a PostPunk anthem back then now updated for dancefloors crossing over between the mentioned and electronics, seeing all kind of Goths, Wave-people and other desparate souls being sucked into the event horizon of this tune that seems to run and run forever despite the physical format runtime limitations. On the flip things are softer, less brooding but still fascinating as the acoustic version unveals a totally different, nearly campfire'ish feel musically although the vocals are not less longing and caught up in despair. Nice one for sure but it's a pity that the digital bonus - Trentemöller's massive rework of Chris Isaak's all-time classic "Blue Hotel" is not to be released physically as well. We need this.
