About this item

To coincide with its ten year anniversary, Domino reissue Four Tet’s seminal album, ‘Rounds’. This reissue features the album as well as a live set from Copenhagen recorded near the time of the original release.

Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet, had this to say of ‘Rounds’ when it was originally released: “I used to be cynical about people saying that their music was a reflection of what was going on in their lives. But when I listen back and think about it, I realise that I am doing it myself and that ‘Rounds’ is totally me. I like a sense of melancholy and I like pop music. This record has a 2am lonely feeling, because that was largely when it was made, on my own, in my little flat.

Taking subtle, child-like piano motifs and juxtaposing them with loose, often seemingly abstract beats, he slowly builds tracks into beautiful, melodic daytime lullabies. Beautiful.
