Autechre RULES! But I wouldn't say they're machines, even in t heir most abstract albums I can clearly hear humanity behind it all

Maybe you should have a look at some of the patchers they wrote for Max/Msp. I tried some of them out, and one of them even creates complex rhythms on command! And with each press off a button the pattern completely changes.

they do consistently make challenging music which is both beautiful and fucking difficult to listen to... years and years has gone by since basscadet and incublaubla and yet their quality hasnt diminished.. it may have faded and got diluted in parts but its was always inheritingly there....

stereolab, shellac, autechre..3 bands that guarantee a quality new album...

my fav ae recordings are probably

peel sessions 1
lp5
ep7
untitled
chiastic slide
quarstice

autechre- live in dublin 2006
insanely loud gig.. and in virtually complete darkness...

and the brilliant gantz gaff

I have problems with this band. Not personally, don't know the fellas, I'm sure they're lovely. But I don't really like it a great deal. I think my problem is that you can't dance to them, but they're not quite head-scratchy enough to be on Mego, let alone Raster-Noton.

This is where someone tells me they're now signed to both labels. Black Dog - yes please!

i am in agreement that they are the best electronic artists of all time. they, and aphex twin of course, totally changed my view of what electronic music can be. i used to think of it as cold, emotionless, and overtly stupid music. but then i heard 'confield' and 'the richard d james album' and shit was i wrong. they make extremly emotional sounds and expressive music with machines, incredible. 'confield' and 'draft.730' are my favorites by them. 'quarstice' is incredible too, surprsing how underwhelming its response was.

i didnt say it compared. i just think 'quarstice' is great, and really fuckin underrated, didnt get as much exposure or press as other autechre releases have gotten. 'confield' however, is a modern day classic.

pretty sure we've had this thread.

Used to be totally obsessed with them, I've completely worn out all their albums, they and electronic music in general has bored me for a while but they're still pretty much the only electronic music I get excited about nowadays.

Yeah, he's good, but I don't think any of his albums have been GREAT... it's usually only a few great songs and tons of mediocre ones.

Great melodies!

Squarepusher's last 3 albums have been pretty crap. Go Plastic and Big Loada are peronal all time favourites of mine however.
As for Autechre, Chiastic Slide is my favourite, while Tri Repetae, LP5 and EP7 are on their way in the mail to me as we speak...

I like them, but I have about 700 Aphex albums that I haven't even gone through, and I prefer him to what I've heard of Autechre.

Autechre are very challenging. It'll take a while but you'll find they're very rewarding. Where do you live again, Slavo?

Yeah, I'm going through iTunes samples to decide if I want to try getting into them. So far Confield sounds amazing, but the rest I'm not sure about. I'll probably just download Confield and listen to it a few times before trying to take in too much at once.
