Edwardian Soccer Uniforms Lead to "Honeyed Melody
& Avant-Electronics" aka Orgy (Plus: MEG Montreal)

I almost never post press releases but this sounds fun. Anyone know if he's any good? I am trying not to be scared off by the initials IDM. It's part of RESfest.

Daedelus @ Supermarket - Thurs Oct 27 --> 1970s soccer-themed party

One of LA's most daring new artists this young musical romantic weaves together a true "love-sound" that falls between honeyed melody and avant-electronics. Daedelus chops and splices disparate acoustic sources into incredible works of staggering resonance. Contrasting IDM styled cut-ups with childlike arrangements from the 30's and 40's, he has refined a style that has no imitators. Exactly the kind of music you'd expect from a scarily well-connected hip hop nut who happens to dress in Edwardian clothing and names himself after an Ancient Greek Legend.

While I'm on the festival beat, I've been meaning to mention the seventh annual MEG Montreal, coming up next week, Oct 19-21. Somewhat overshadowed by Pop Montreal, MEG's a more electronic and hip-hop-oriented festival, with a smattering of rock and the quality-control knob dialed up quite high. If I could make it (which sadly I cannot) I'd be eager to hear the contingent of German talent, including Deutsche new-wave stalwarts Der Plan (who thankfully should be appearing in Toronto too), a big contingent from the Cologne electronics scene, etc. They've also got DJ Marlboro from Brasil (Mr. Baile Funk), Peanut Butter Wolf, J-Rocc, Islands (ex-Unicorns), Broken Social Scene, etc.

Clive,
re: Daedelus. If it helps any, in a recent interview I did with tastemaker Carlos Niño (who seems to have worked with or be connected to every progressive musician and producer in LA ), Daedelus was firmly pointed out as the producer to watch. No confirmation on his sartorial flair, though.
