ELECTRONIC producer Daedelus's new LP may be called Righteous Fists Of Harmony, but one listen and it's clear that he's a lover, not a fighter.
The 11th album from Daedelus, real name Alfred Darlington, is a wonderfully woozy swirl of dreamy electronica, dominated by six minute opener An Armada Approaches and Order Of The Golden Dawn, featuring his wife and The Long Lost partner Laura.
The problem is, even with these two more memorable tracks, the whole thing, evocative and string-soaked as it is, passes by in a slumber.
If you're reading this, Mr Darlington, please see the Junk Culture review below.
