Daedelus – Bespoke

May 10, 2011

Daedelus - Bespoke - Ninja Tune (2011)

Some might express bewilderment at Alfred Darlington’s (aka Daedelus‘) eclecticism, penchant for experimentation, and Abraham Lincoln looks.  But I consider all those things virtues.

His new album, “Bespoke,” brings back memories of the stuff that used to come out on ZE Records: stylish, danceable, varied but certainly never dull. And you can’t fault his taste in collaborators: Milosh (below, from the new record), Bilal (also on the record, and in another performance below), and Baths, just to name a few.
