anyone on here a fan?

an absolute fucking trip, certainly one of the better records Ae have ever released. it can be seen as a culmination of their post-2000s work: the knotty, subtle rhythmic pulses of Confield; the somewhat organic electronics of Draft 7.30; the full-on aural assault beatwork of Untilted; Quaristice's collage-like feel; and Oversteps' beautifully intricate and intimate atmospherics. its closest counterpart though would probably be Gantz Graf, just total (structured) annihilation.

conversely, it's their most unified record sound-wise. the record as a whole is tied together by this fucking monolithic low-end, certainly the bassiest and most percussive record ae have ever done, much of it borders on hip-hop at points.

the most accessible Ae LP in ages, probably their most instantly gratifying since Chiastic Slide, but it is still imbued with their signature abstruseness.

this bastard will destroy live, mark my fucking words.

He'll yes I'm a fan, but I haven't kept track of them in a few years. Oversteps was the last album I knew about.

I will have to look into this ASAP.

it's not traditional hip-hop, no, due to the warped (hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa), amorphous nature of the beats but they are imbued with a similar sensibility.

Listened once, really dug the first side especially the track bladelores but man this is a long record. Think i'll be dividing it up into listening sessions next time I listen.

Sounds like they've just dangled a bone above a synth and teased a dog into jumping on the keys randomly. Then they press play on their random beat making machines/plugins and there you have it: a modern day Autechre song.

Semi-retired. I'm still trying to put something together and still have the file you sent forever ago. I've been sidetracked by other rubbish time consuming addiction things.

yes, weird. i was just chilling to some Autehre songs from last night.

particularly the Envane ep and songs from around that era. not my fav type of electronica because i've never been a fan IDM. i like my Electronic simple and stiff like Kraftwerk, except more danceable and melodic like Electro or synth pop. the complex shit just bores me. same goes for Aphex fuck Twin.

stellar album. it's unusual for an act to be putting out fresh material like this after decades of constant, varied output.

I have been playing this album pretty consistently over the past week or so, and I think it's excellent. Probably the best album I've heard in the greater genre since Mouse on Mars delivered their one-two punch in 2012.
