Review: Daedelus – Rethinking The Weather [2003]

Daedelus - Rethinking The WeatherWhen listening to the open track, which is full of radio or television samples, I checked out the album information on Discogs. One of the users listed the genre as Downtempo, furthering my lack of understanding of what this genre really is. To me it includes Portishead and 12 Rounds and fuckwhateverelseisgoingonhere. What is missing in the genre description is IDM, there are some elements here.

Have you listened to “their” album The Weather? Really if you haven’t, this isn’t the way to be introduced to the band. This is mostly a reworked mostly instrumental mostly version of that mostly album. I don’t take drugs, I have stuff to do, but this seems good for that. Don’t spend too much time near any mirrors, or Minos might also have you imprisoned.

From the artist’s biography, “Alfred was born in Santa Monica in 1977 to an artist mother and psychologist father.” Well, so was I, and in the same year, and fuck you, and fuck you Alfred. Fuck you.

Too many beat concepts are merging here, I overall think the album is a one-time-listen.

Not an actual video, because fuck you too.
