  1. yeah I don't understand promotion hype tbh like, we're gonna buy it, just fkn give it to us
  2. Wow this album is so fkn good, wtf. This and SIGN were exactly what I wanted to hear from Autechre, I'm happy.
  3. Hearing some background noise in this so far, especially in track 1, where it sound like something has been mic'd up? Yeah bitroast was having troubles earlier. Keep trying, it'll eventually work!
  4. I knew it wouldn't be an "a"
  5. lol fucking hell I mean, I'm genuinely sorry if he's autistic or something (I mean this sincerely) and interpreted my posts the wrong way.. but shit, some of the stuff he said really made it easy to joke about.
  6. It wouldn't be the first time they've referenced a WATMM meme..
  7. Haha! Well, not anymore, since Ess has left (or is leaving) Elektron. It's nice that he thought of me for a sneak peek though ? I hope it's a successful venture for him and his partner.
  8. I got the chance to play with a pre-release version. It's very nice. The sequencer can get pretty meditative / psychedelic.
  9. Nah, they changed their minds. Rob and Sean got sick of Wurstwasser complaining in the back seat, so Sean said, "That's it! I'm turnin' this car around!!". No holiday down south in the greens for us. Thanks a lot Wursty. Always ruining it for the rest of us.
  10. I don't get that you don't get M4 Lema. The comments? Sound like Blah, blah, blah, snore. Not necessarily bad, but if you don't like it who cares. But there's not much for me. Opinions are boring. An intro sleeping pill. May be just me. I'm more that positive review type of guy. Or the review development in Alcofribas. The kind of stuff which I probably expect from WATMM.
  11. Good type nerding. Century Gothic is to Avant Garde as Arial is to Helvetica—a filthy, horrible imposter.
  12. It's buggy and a lot of features are incomplete/missing. It is v0.1 though. Oliver said on Twitter that the plan is to have it be more capable than nanoloop2. Also he's going through the backers in sequential order, rather than going by country. I was backer #96, and the package was sent on the 27th of September.
  13. Finally got this today. It's very small and light. Firmware definitely feels very early. But I've still managed to get some good sounds out of it.
  14. Using Ableton as an example is a bit strange, especially since Max for Live is a thing. Yeah, it brings back memories of listening to Piezo on acid, super beautiful. Right? I'd be thinking, "man these guys really nail the Ae-sthetic"
  15. If this had been someone else's album, I still would have lost my shit over Metaz form8, at the very least.
  16. but theres not enough cOmPlEx BeAtS!!!!
  17. Most Ae songs are 4/4 and repetitive though?! A DAW is only as limited as you are. And I'd say Ae are pretty good at getting whatever the fuck they want out of pretty much anything these days; I don't think anything forces them to be more "traditional". Maphive6.1 is a good example of that—they used a very pattern-based sequencer (PMA5) to make one of their most proggy tracks.
  18. I'm enjoying the sound design much more than elseq and NTS, tbh. It's a lot warmer.
  19. Thanks for saying this, I've now realised I'm a total piece of shit for enjoying this album
  20. Steve Reich vibes in n Cur imo I was expecting a Joy Division cover
  21. anyone else getting Brodels vibes from F7? Mostly in the lyric "With a sonic assault sidesteppin' you"
  22. Do you like The Brothers? I've been a big Autechre fan ever since the release of their 2001 album, Confield. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too ambient, too up-front. It was on Confield where Sean Booth's presence became more apparent. I think SIGN was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant Max/MSP patching of Booth and Brown. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of sampling craftsmanship, the sheer generativeness, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the reverb in Metaz form8. In this song, Sean Booth addresses the problems of abusive political authority. M4 Lema is the most moving IDM song of the 2020s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their synthesised drum hits are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Sean Booth's album with Mika Vainio and Kouhei Matsunaga, 3. Telepathics Meh In-Sect Connection, seems to be less commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like Mika And Kouhei And Sean. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Sean works best within the confines of Autechre, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Kouhei And Sean, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
