Sound of a Wind Chime over the Sea, Minotaur Shock.

When my harddrive got dropped broke, the first record I made sure still existed somewhere or other metaphysical (or at least digital) within this humble abode from which fingers frenziedly both tiki and taka was Maritime. The sort of record that – although criminally underrated and oft critically ignored – makes you think, well, if you've not heard it it's your loss as much, no; more than it is David Edwards', it's truly special. Albeit in a totally understated sorta way. Under the similarly subtle, yet truly lovely nom de plume Minotaur Shock the Bristol-based producer and 4AD affiliate has been producing emotive electronica for over a decade now and his deftness of touch still shows no sign of clumping. Although there's a Gold Panda rework out and about on this one, it's the original that quietly, blissfully saunters into open ears: taking its name from the quintessentially wet and windy West Walian utopia of Pembrokeshire, the track is as though a mellifluously knelled wind chime dangling out over the Bristol Channel set to a slow yet sumptuous muffle of a clack. Lifted from a forthcoming LP entitled Orchard – Edwards' first in four years – it may finally be time for his burgeoning talents to fully bloom.
