Alfred Darlington, the artist better known as Daedelus, recently released his 19th studio album, titled Taut.

The album sees Daedelus utilizing Ableton Live for the first time in his career, and was assembled at his home studio in Los Angeles in a “mode of transition and process refining.” The collection of 16 tracks features trombonist Jonah Levine, Portland-based singer Sara Z, multi-instrumentalist Goodnight Cody, newly signed Alpha Pup artist Niels Broos, and The Breathing Effect’s Echo Go Away. It’s Darlington’s first album since 2017’s Baker’s Dozen.
