    Default Autechre, NTS Residency

    Apparently they're doing one of their infamously long radio things this month, four two hour shows throughout April. I'm assuming this means that there's new material on the way.

    I got a bit fed up of these guys when they dismissed something as lovely as this as being too "cheesy":



    They made something sublime and then shat all over it.

    I think the best album they did after 'Amber' was 'LP5' which I still treasure on vinyl: the best mix of architeructal chaos and addictive genre melody. Most of the rest I can totally leave.

    Exai's probably my favourite of theirs, that or Draft 7.30. I like Incunabula a lot too.

    Dunno if anyone's been paying attention or is interested, but the four NTS shows are all new material that will be released as a package once the residency's finished. It's effectively an eight hour album, or four two hour albums. Each session is also left looping on the NTS site until the following one airs. Interesting way of presenting it.

    You probably won't be into this then as it's just their own stuff.

    This week's (NTS 2) is amazing and highly recommended for those who think Autechre are all about hypercomplex beats /machine music blah blah.

    Lots of clever references to the last 10+ years of dance music. A bit more ambient in places. Great stuff


    Craner: NTS 1 had an artificial intelligence style track updated for 2018 in the last third, which was great. They haven't dismissed it. More like mangled it.

    hate is such a strong word reserve that for future sound of london (future sound of anaemia more like!) after '92.
