  1. So if they really are that attentive to WATMM, maybe the sudden release was to spare us all another 100+ pg thread of ridiculous speculation
  2. lmao @ the lazer gun sounds in ii.pre esc
  3. The Autechre Twins are always a few steps ahead of us, thinking of a big picture we can't see yet. It comes into focus with time and digestion (and by then they're already onto the next thing). SIGN seems so much more substantial already, alongside the PLUS material. We really are spoiled! EDIT: also lol at all the comparisons to BOC's rate of output. Not mean spirited or anything but, how agonizing it must be to still be clinging on to them lol
  4. I have no idea lmao I'm not knowledgeable about gear really. Just lushness
  5. lux 106 mod more like lush 106 mod amirite
  6. I'm still working on SIGN , but PLUS is an immediate love. Vegetables are just easier on the system I guess!
  7. Coincidentally one of my tasks of the day was to process these two huge bags of beets that I bought. Perfect task for first listen! I can hear it! Those wheezy sounds? EP7 competes heavily for title of my fav [album] of theirs so this is a big win. Fkin love this so far!
  8. Holy hell this is nice. Day officially derailed. Wake n bake time. THX SUE & RHONDA !!!!!!!
  9. Me: "On wednesday I am gonna get up and get a bunch of shit done" *logs in to watmm* ....
  10. This is true. Wasn't it suggested that L-event could be a reference to the "is Autechre relevant anymore" bit, as well?
  11. I've never had any issue with the name SIGN or the artwork at all - not the first time they've used pronounceable English words for a title, or vivid colours, tho some seem to make it out that way... But I really hope this PLUS rumour isn't true. It's definitely an obvious nod to "Sean pls", which is cute and all, but a bit too corny and obvious for them don't you think? I'm guessing it's just a fan trolling fellow fans.
  12. I know this is the SIGN thread and all but damn, I've got column thirteen playing as I browse this thread -- around 14 min mark with your post, and these videos coincided perfectly (esp the second one!) Really nice work! I really hope those aren't the shades of green they use... 🤢
  13. Rumour has it that, to counter the unwanted popularity from SIGN, the green album is a single 58-minute-long fart (but with a bewildering amount of fine detail "buried" in it)
  14. Probably mostly referring to tbm2, pendulu casual, spTh and even eastre... those I'd say are arguably pretty static and especially seemed so at first impression. That's about it tho... elseq is a banquet
  15. au14 is track of the day for me, gotta say. This has got some serious bass that goes undetected without good speakers or headphones. And it occurred to me that the fluttery little melodic bits are quite similar to those bits in north spiral (5 min mark onward)(and the part of AE_Live that does that same bit), and also keyosc. And those tracks are all about the same tempo. 🤓
  16. Pretty well sums up my first impressions too. There is a lot in SIGN that reveals itself with more listens tho. Listening on headphones has been a game changer for me.
  17. What kind of "guide to Autechre" skips an entire 10 year span including some of their most significant output (confield/draft/untilted/quaristice)?!
  18. It officially feels like fall where I live - bit of a chill in the air, trees changing colour - and I took about a half hour walk home from work this afternoon with a lil doobie and listened to the first half of SIGN as I walked thru a quieter residential area with lots of gardens and trees and everything in full colour. A bit overcast today but still a nice glowing light in the sky. This was good. I should have taken some pics but it was nice to just take it in. I am really coming around to this album and it didn't even take too long. Yes I found it disappointing at first impression. Obviously I was expecting way more robot farts, I mean pls. But usually, in my experience, being rubbed the wrong way at first by something that I know fundamentally is good (this is my faith in Autechre) is a good SIGN.
  19. How so? SIGN is already an hour long. An additional 15 would bring it up to 16. 4 doubled is 8, 8 doubled is 16. Alternately if they were just increasing by 4hrs each time, it would be 12. Dumb joke anyway, and maybe I didn't put it very clearly. Carry on
  20. Just a joke, based on elseq being 4hrs, NTSS being 8 --> etc Edit: That's just to greedily assume they'd be increasing the output exponentially. I suppose I'd be happy if this one were only 12hrs
  21. Yeah but where are the other 15 hours of music!?
  22. For those who find SIGN underwhelming or too much a departure from the things we love about them, hey there's a huge backlog of material most of us have still been barely able to process. The beautiful thing about elseq and NTS Sessions is that over time they reveal themselves to be just as coherent and engaging as any of the albums before them. Nothing is ever as it seems at first with Ae (including the apparent simplicity of SIGN, I'm starting to think.) Elseq/NTS tracks seemed too long, too intense, too jammy at first, virtually impenetrable even to those of us who have been fans for decades. Do they still seem that way a couple years later? Not for me. Actually I've been playing both of them a lot in this past month, and with that growing familiarity they don't feel out of place in the discography at all.
  23. Yeah, xflood as an opener is puzzling. Just slamming someone in the face right off the bat? Usually there's at least a few seconds of barely audible sounds before that happens
