Lo-Tech MP3

There’s no assurance with a Daedelus release, no clear sense of what it might be based on any of his previous musical excursions. In place of his recent lo-fi hip-hop, his Denies the Day’s Demise album from earlier this year offered, instead, lo-tech dance music, indie-clubby beats that sound like they were patched together on a laptop between print jobs during the nighthawks shift at Kinko’s. The website of the releasing label, Mush Records, offers one full track, “Like Clockwork Springs” (MP3), which chugs along with Casio aplomb. It’s also that rare thing in this click-track world: a track that appears to speed up as it goes along. More info at mushrecords.com and daedelusdarling.com.
