Minotaur Shock – Maritime

Minotaur Shock – Maritime

minotaur shock-maritime


David Edwards’s newly minted disco folktronica, as easily aligned with Sufjan Stevens as Aphex Twin, is a little bit very crazy. Not that deejays shouldn’t read melodramatic 1930s novels, but when Edwards cited du Maurier as a serious influence on his album, the royal “we” were a little, uh, surprised. Does he spray himself with violet perfume too?
Taking the ocean as a foundation for rhythm, Maritime offers a deeply narcotic and glamorous epic tale of the sea. And du Maurier seems apt as the calm push and pull of the waves emerges, and the odd creak of the ship’s deck materializes in foreboding oboes and clarinets.
