I wish i could get into them. Love Boards of Canada, Aphex, and -ziq ( u have to listen to Duntisbourne Abbots Soulmate Devastation Technique if you don't know of it..its brilliant!).

Gonna keep trying tho. I'll go back to the ITunes samples. Ok, what would you advise starting with..?

Glice 09.23.2009 03:16 PM

I'd plough though this before if I were you. Jeff Mills and DJ Rolando especially.

I gathered that. 'You Messy Motherfucker' gives it away.

I think ep7 might be a good place to start.

Since your recommendation, i managed to try a few of their recordings. I picked up EP7, Chichlisuite ep, Amber, and LP5.

I guess i'm warming up to them more and more. EP7 is prob my favorite of the above(thanks for the tip), but LP5 has some nice stuff on there too. Amber's a bit bland.

I think all their early stuff is a bit bland and predictable and straightforward. Even Autechre will admit that. Though each release does have some good stuff. I think they got better with every release... except Quaristice, which was a signifiant step down in quality from Untilted... and Oversteps which is a big step down from Quaristice. So perhaps they're starting their decline now.

I think all of their albums are great - Amber is actually one of my favorite albums, though of course it's not as original as what followed. I wouldn't say myself (but of course to each their own) that each album is better than the previous one - for me, their best one is definitely Confield and Draft 7.30 certainly isn't better than it imo... That said, I still think there is some kind of logic in the succession of their albums. Like, each album makes sense in the context of their whole discography, which I find interesting.
Like, they began with 90s-style ambient electronica, and then slowly got to a more complex, rhythm-based sound, each album being a step in that till LP5; then when complex rhythms are as important as melodies, they went on for pure abstraction on Confield, and then they continued in that abstract way by giving more and more space to the rhythms again until Untilted (which is their second best album for me). I feel like they reached the limits of that abstraction with Untilted, and I see Quaristice as a mean to sum up their whole discography and experiment on new things (shorter tracks, etc). I still haven't heard Oversteps but apparently it's focusing far more on melodies than beats, so that might be the next step: changing their focus, giving more importance to melodies than rhythms. Then again that might be pure craziness - and/or foolish ideas due to waking up too early

Oversteps is like 5 or 6 somewhat traditional Autechre tracks and the rest are beatless keyboard tinkerings. It's alright. Kinda boring.

SYRFox 03.24.2010 11:44 AM

i feel like a fanboy for saying this but i think this album really rules.

atsonicpark 03.24.2010 04:02 PM

Autechre is one of my top 10 favorite artists of all time. Definitely my favorite electronic artist of all time. I'm def. a fanboy...

Still think this album's just decent though. Oh well.

SYRFox 03.24.2010 04:39 PM

i'm amazed at the fact that they can release a very melodic album - which i find very good -, and at the same time offer a completely different live experience - yet mindblowing. They were pretty amelodic when I saw them live last week, and massively relying on rhythms - some of them being pretty violent, which contrasts with the chill feel of Oversteps. I can't wait to see them again

SYRFox 05.25.2010 12:00 AM

So apparently they're going to release another ten-track record in July. http://autechre.ws/move-of-ten/
And it's got a 4-to-the-floor track on it. Awesome.

atsonicpark 05.25.2010 01:11 AM

awesome, can't wait, thanks

davenotdead 05.25.2010 01:39 AM

yeah this is insane

atsonicpark 05.25.2010 01:45 AM

yeah, this track is already a billion times better than anything on oversteps.

atsonicpark 06.15.2010 06:34 AM

move of ten leaked, WAY better than oversteps or quaristice..
