DENIES THE DAY'S DEMISE sees Daedelus refining his sampled soundscapes, from the swelling strings of "At My Heels" to the more folksy "Sundown," both of which share a crazed percussive backing. "Bahia" takes a Brazilian detour, and "Like Clockwork Springs" has fun with its lo-fi melodics. "Nouveau Nova" introduces more acidic electronics to contrast the semi-classical brass. Indeed, Daedelus loves to mix the two as Lawrence Welk-like tunes wander in the chaos of "Dreamt Of Drowning." A delicacy climbs into the fuzz of "Sunrise," and "Viva Vida" caps the album on a note of sweetness, and the day continues unabated.
