Minotaur Shock - Orchard What a deeply strange record this is. Over the last ten years, David Edwards has produced glitchy, mellifluous electronica for 4AD and Melodic, while moonlighting on numerous projects. Most recently he has provided electronic percussion for Perfume Genius and mixed tracks for new Warp-signing Kwes. However, on this, his fifth Minotaur Shock album, the Bristol-based producer is determined to escape the confines of his laptop. Stylistically, this is an album that never stands still. Nine-minute opener "Janet" folds trembling, swooping folk strings into the kind of tangerine synthetic dream that DFA's Delia & Gavin specialise in. "Ocean Swell" riffs, unexpectedly, on late '90s ambient drum & bass while simultaneously invoking the precision, starkness and sonic oppression of much modern classical composition. Orchard fades a little at its close.

On ‘Orchard’ Edwards embraced the "folktronica" tag that had previously been a burden, but, nearly seven years on, he has renounced the acoustic guitars, drums and woodwind instruments to make ‘MINO’ - the sound of a man getting to grips with his machines without relinquishing his innate musicality and ear for joyous melodies. Although electronica was integral to the Minotaur Shock sound (he has also released purer excursions in the form as Principal Participant.
