Goodnight Cody “Wide as the Moonlight, Warm as the Sun” (Magical Properties)

Posted in Alpha Pup Releases with tags , on September 15, 2015 by worldromper

Cover

Set sail onto a cartoon ocean on a quest to an imaginary world in Wide as the Moonlight, Warm as the Sun. A perfect fit for Daedelus’ label Magical Properties, the new album by Goodnight Cody (of Team Supreme) is an experience of powerful imagery and pure poetic whimsy.

Synthesized vocals, colorful toy beats, and charmingly playful dreamscapes create a captivating story of adventure. Every track is like a different land – or level – with all the twists, turns, and emotions that define the hero’s journey: uncertainty, excitement, loneliness, romance, melancholy and victory.

Pack your bags for “Travel Alone,” which flips from slow and ponderous to funky and frenetic and back again – infused throughout with stars, so shiny and bright. “Paper Boat” launches into easy pink waves, under a glowing green sky and butter moon.

With a childlike sense of wonder, “I Met a Whale” sways side to side in the deep blue sea – inspiring kisses, songs and smiles. “A Walk Through the Trees” pauses in the fresh feel of new love, and “Almost Forgot” expands with rising energy into the sunset.

Absorbing and pleasantly unreal, Wide as the Moonlight, Warm as the Sun is a sonic kaleidoscope that ignites the imagination and makes music into a game.

Interview with Daedelus

Los Angeles’ Finest: Daedelus Darling

January 2010

One of the pioneers of the Los Angeles beat music community, Daedelus has been delivering wild live performances in the area for years with the help of the futuristic Monome device and a penchant for dressing as an nineteenth-century dandy.

The experimental music producer hits New Zealand this month and then sets off on a nationwide tour beginning February 4 for his new label Magical Properties with Nosaj Thing and Jogger. Daedelus sat down with me for an interview at Philippe’s French Dip to speak on collisions of sound, art and fashion in the creative communities of Los Angeles and his personal conspiracy theory.

Magical Properties Tour: Daedelus, Nosaj Thing & Jogger

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2010 by worldromper

I have for a while been singing the praises of Daedelus, Nosaj Thing and Jogger, not to mention Daedelus’ new imprint, Magical Properties, of which the artist has said:

“The label is supposed to be about, in a certain sense, taking music very seriously but also having fun. It’s trying to conjure up a bit of an outside idea.”

If you like outside ideas, check out this nationwide tour AKA “a whole cavalcade caravan across this great continent” which has been heralded by the LA Weekly and XLR8R. And you can read my interview with Daedelus for Covers Magazine here.
