  1. What's not to get about pce freeze? It's an exercise in discordant, dissonant chords
  2. The bastard actually manages to work out some pretty awesome transitions between tracks... something that I didn't think was really possible with most of Autechre's work.
  3. This I thought we were past this with the previous several AE releases just dropping out of the ether with little warning. Fingers crossed they drop the digital downloads several weeks early.
  4. I dug up the quote: from the AAA spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XAizLmKun4yF6oBVUhIrewYN-ZiY_9ORckmT-hF93Ho/edit#gid=0 So basically, they can do solo stuff but only if they do it under Warp? I guess that's what I'm understanding.
  5. If I remember correctly, Sean was upset with them for crediting him directly, as he wanted to be credited as Autechre. Don't ask me for a source for that though, it's just memory.
  6. Here's hoping they pull an Autechre on us and drop the full album downloads in a week
  7. I think it looks pretty sweet, and It's been over a decade since they had some color in their album covers
  8. Stop bumping my ancient threads, the cringe is making me sick to my stomach
  9. Most of the second half is a tad waffly for my liking, but otherwise it's a pretty solid release! Definitely beats The Digging Remedy, but falls a bit short of Reachy Prints for me (though I have an enormous hard-on for RP). Standouts for me so far: Los Maru Ops Drowned Sea!!! Dancers The Pale Moth starts really strong but kinda gets a bit faffy when the oboes come in. The beginning bit really reminds me of this track from Cultist Simulator though (very plaid-like) Meds Fade is half decent but I can't figure out what they're try
  10. It almost feels like malicious compliance at this point, after the decade or so of fans constantly asking for live sets. Like, "OH, YOU WANT SOME LIVE SETS?!?!?!?!"
  11. Since when do you have a private line to the Chre?
  12. Is all this happening in the watmm discord or something?
  13. So, evidently this is Autechre's form of a pre-release ARG?
  14. I'm super out of the loop here. They released MD/MM patches on their site, and now there's 13 hours of crazy A/V stuff floating around?
  15. I haven't had the chance to make it through the entire thing yet, but Revsic has earned about 6 or 7 rotations already. That track is top 10 devine for sure.
  16. I've gotta say, I've been really enjoying 9 chr0. I feel like there's an enormous amount of depth that I keep picking away at on each listen. The polyphony in this track is insane. In the way that some autechre tracks are like a synth duet, this track is like several people all excitedly talking over each other trying to tell the same story. It's also one of the few tracks on this record where the rhythm is slippery enough to get away from me regularly. I'd be interested in listening with a metronome to try and figure that aspect out.
  17. I'm very much enjoying NTS so far. As of now, I would say it beats out elseq for me, maybe not quite as good as Exai though. I think there's two main things I would criticise: Too many of the tracks are almost completely lacking in progression, despite almost all of them being upwards of 10 minutes. Go peruse through any tracks of theirs from the last decade and as you skip around the track it's like several completely different tracks all woven together. Used to be the case if you played me a 2-3 second snippet of an autechre track I could tell you the rough timestamp. I think I woul
  18. Ugh, I really don't like the idea of streaming only bs. So I need to have an app to listen to the one track I don't have in my mp3 collection? Here's hoping they release it for paid download later on their site or something, otherwise I will defo be finding a rip.
  19. 9 chrO at 2:25-3:35, 9:00-9:20 Am I crazy in thinking this track has kind of a country-rock vibe to it?
  20. Made a little jam today just messing around with parameter automation in renoise. What do you fellers think? EDIT: dicked around with it a bit more and re-uploaded a new version.
  21. Nice one, reminds me of Bruxist Frog.
  22. That's a tasty little diddly. As others have said there isn't much going on in it, but it would work perfectly as an interlude track of sorts I think.
  23. 120bpm, hey? During the broadcast personally I only managed to locate the pulse towards the end, because if I'm not mistaken that's when the snare drum becomes more steady. I think of it as 12/8 or 4/4 in triplets yeah it's 4/4 triplets.. cf.: https://soundcloud.com/0f-digital/autechre-bqbqbq-vs-vnv-nation-electronaut what a bunch of smartypants we all are Not to be that guy, but how was this not super obvious like partway through the first listen?
  24. My theory on the organization of NTS sessions
  25. Firstly, to be fair, I believe people were saying all sorts of existential things about the ending of bladelores back when it came out. That aside though, while they begin almost identically, and all end has a very similar sound all throughout, there are undertones and overtones that are not present in bladelores that give this track an incredible emotional coloring to me. Like, I get how someone might think it's literally just the ending of bladelores looped for an hour, but I really think you're missing the subtlety there. For me, those subtle colorizations make the difference betwee
