Album Review

Opening with a bit of Lord Tennyson's poem The Charge of the Light Brigade, Daedelus' 15th long-player was inspired by the Crimean War, but it doesn't evoke death, despair, or destruction. Quite the contrary, The Light Brigade is the multi-genre producer in a serene mode, employing harp, nylon-string guitars, and collaborator Young Dad's cooing vocals for a landscape that only represents the battlefield for those well into their morphine drips. "Onward" is what the Civil Wars would sound like if they freed themselves from songs and just went for "feel"; then "The Victory of the Echo Over the Voice" is as precious and violent as its title, which is to say "yes" for the first and "no" for the latter. "Pre-Munitions" is like three flamenco guitarists giggling through their instruments, while "Baba Yaga" comes on with the poise of a rich Windham Hill cut delivered in the new age label's prime. Laid end to end, the album offers a cool, breezy getaway to a land where one reflects on the nice bits and forgets all the rest; that's until the grave closer "Country of Conquest" comes on with its sobering strings and low tones. Barely any of it fits into the "left-field hip-hop" category, although the album carries the crate-crawler spirit of creating new moods through borrowed music. Don't sweat the concept because if war is hell, The Light Brigade is almost the opposite.

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Born Alfred Weisberg-Roberts in Santa Monica, California, producer/instrumentalist Daedelus wanted to be an inventor from an early age, a sentiment that led to him choosing an artistic moniker (in Greek mythology, Daedelus was known as an inventor, although Weisberg-Roberts also cites the character Stephan Dedalus in James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man — as well as the ship in the Japanese cartoon Robotech — as equally valid reasons for his selection) when he began releasing...
