Not unlike Caribou (a.k.a. Dan Snaith), Alfred “Daedelus” Darlington crafts an impossible-to-pigeonhole mélange of electronica, experimental music, and indie rock. But where Caribou zigs into pop, Daedelus zags into hip-hop. Darlington has collaborated with underground rappers such as Busdriver and Paperboy—the latter making a guest appearance on Daedelus’ 2008 disc, Love To Make Music To—by providing loosely wound batches of whirring, bubbly beats and instrumentation. Darlington has been moving closer to pop-minded accessibility—as evidenced by his moonlighting gig in the giddy outfit The Long Lost with his wife, Laura. His latest album, 2011’s Bespoke, featured guests new and old—Busdriver, Baths, and Inara George are a few names that turn up—for what was arguably his best album yet.
