Dinner is the alias for Danish producer and singer Anders Rhedin. Dinner leads a nomadic existence, dividing his time between LA, Berlin and Copenhagen. In the last two years, he has put out three EPs and a guided meditation tape.
Available for the first time on vinyl, the complete Three EPs, 2012-2014 collection will see a release April 14—serving as an eclectic introduction to what could be music’s next great glam-pop hope. The collection of murky synth-laden oddities will include Girl, Oui!, and You Are Like LA.
One could argue that there’s something inherently idiosyncratic about Dinner’s music—like the world’s most unlikely pop artist. Sometimes Dinner sounds like a long-lost mixtape from the local Dusseldorf pop scene in the early 1980s. Other times he sounds something like the soundtrack to David Lynch directing Miami Vice, or Genesis P-Orridge embracing Italian pop-infused Danish darkwave, or like a male descendant of Nico singing Eno-esque pop songs on discarded Julian Cope tracks.
Does Dinner see himself as a pop star from a parallel universe, as one blog recently suggested he might be? “I’m more like the village idiot singing stadium rock hymns,” he says.
In April 2015 Dinner will support Mac DeMarco on his West Coast tour. In May and June he’ll embark on his first extended European tour. He’s currently in LA, where he’s working on his debut full-length.
