Los Angeles-based legit pioneer, standard bearer for experimental electronics Alfred Darlington aka Daedelus is back with a new album. The Bittereinders is out now via Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder. According to the press release, the album reveals the sound of ancient requiem with evocations of Township Jazz, but still modern electronic music by way of drone, pipe organ wheezing and incessant beats.
“From the belief that contemporary events are too difficult to address,” Alfred explains. “I’ve reached back into history to relate some of what is largely forgotten to directly look into the ravages which continue to echo. All records fuse unrelenting repetition of lyric and forms, evocative noise and reaching melodies.”
