About this item
Autechre, masters of uncompromising glitched-out electronic business return with a new full-length for the titans of 'leccy music, Warp.
From the blistering VHS-saturated beginning of 'M4 Lema', we're taken on a ride through fractured nu-rave, 90's influenced braindance and flickering barely-connected electrical circuits.
The more choral moments (the beautiful, Hecker-esque 'esc desc' for example) help to make things a little less frantic by soothing the glitch-addled mind with some swells of organ and reverbed synth wisps.
This is as uncompromising and skilfully collated as any of Autechre's work thus far, and further cements their reputation as the ultimate Enfant Terrible of electronic music.
Barry says: Shit the bed, it's a new Autechre record! Famously someone once told me that my CD was skipping back in the day, but the joke was on them, because it wasn't. One of the masters of the genre returns, and I genuinely couldn't be more excited. HUGE news.
