Taking a cue from two tape-based pieces from The Epiphany of Glenn Jones, Cul de Sac embarked on a new path informed by that experience. A remarkably different approach to creating their music unfurled. Samples form the backbone of the album, the blueprint of the tunes. As the foundation became increasingly electronic-oriented, Cul de Sac responded with acoustic textures, and the juxtaposition works magically, a seamless integration. Death of the Sun is the result, by far the most elaborate, difficult, melancholic …and heart-wrenchingly beautiful album of their career.
