First the background:
The Peace Corporation is Peter Kruder, who is one half of Kruder & Dorfmeister. And K&D are the defining act in style of music that is both overlooked and extremely hard to categorise.
Its jazz, its trance, is wallpaper, its lounge music, its chill-out music.
It is all of these and none of them. The best description I have seen so far is "Chill out music for the switched on".
A few more artists in this genre: Thievery Corporation, Fila Brazilia, Daniel Ibbotson. Get surfing :o)
So, onto this recording:
I would try to avoid superlatives, but im afraid it is not possible. This CD is as good as it gets.
More laid back than K&D, more trancey, more crisp. The tracks are varied and distinct, and hopelessly addictive.
This CD is not a sound track for a dark french thriller, but it could be.
It wont change your life either, but it DOES belong in your CD collection, along with...
