Eclectic folktronica… perhaps.

At first you think he might be folktronica, then he chucks some Prefab Sprout-era 80s pop at you. Then you think he might be a fan of IDM, and he throws a bunch of jagged Philip Glass-style clarinets your way. OK, you've still got a chance. Perhaps, when he starts to play guitar in the style of The Wedding Present's David Gedge... In fact, the delicate, filigree music that David Edwards makes as Minotaur Shock is as uncategorizable as it is surprising. Although partly inspired by pirate stories, Maritime conjures up an ocean of sound where the horizon is constantly shifting. A real treasure.

Susanna Glazer 10 June 05 rating of 3 and 1/2
Minotaur Shock – Maritime, released 13 June 05 on 4AD.
