Daedelus Rethinking the Weather
- Words: Rachel Swan
- Label: Mush
Blending tapered-knicker nerdiness with hypermodern digital effects, So-Cal producer Daedelus is wedged between the Burberry-scarved world of Godard and the cyborg-dominated world of Ghost in the Shell. Rethinking the Weather is a pastiche of instrumentals from his 2002 release The Weather-for which Daedelus teamed up with the droll, space-cadet-ish emcees Busdriver and Radioinactive. Rethinking preserves The Weather's characteristic zaniness, mixing cheesy Archies-style organ with driving thwicka-thwicka-boom percussion ("Dark Days"), lazy whistling ("Bright Star"), and children's toy instrumentals ("Name Game"). What results are instrumental remixes with as much narrative arch as the original cuts.
