  1. Shutting Down Here (2020) is excellent. It's like a concise mix of his more accessible / pop / classical-flavored tropes, with more far out, explorative synthesis elements. Def one of my favorite electro-acoustic recordings. sleep like it's winter is also super- pleasant... in the vein of Steamroom 40
  2. it was like 1998-99 and i was big into sonic youth, jim o'rourke (his interviews, name drops), free jazz / noise & various "indie" rocks. i was looking (at random) through the CDs at a local record store and spotted ep7. i purchased the album because it looked cool. around the same time, i met a girl named amber. she gave me a tape copy of Amber (the album), and i listened to it whilst walking around downtown, late one summer night, in salt lake city. that experience hooked me on it, but i didn't really tune back in to Ae until '04, when Draft came out. seeing sean booth's expression on the cover of WIRE in 2004, along with Xylin Room, 6IE.CR, Surripere and Reniform Puls transformed me from casual listener / dabbler into a moderate "head" ... IV VV IV VV VIII took me forever to like. Now, i think it's beautiful.
  3. love the physicality and roomy textures of DekDre Scap B .. aside from the primary melody, it sounds like Perlence's (album version) souped up cousin. i get a certain Quari vibe (plyPhon + Perlence) from the opener... wish it were longer! sorry if this has already been observed and mentioned
  4. M4 Lema is primo 'chre. Metaz form8 sounds like an outtake from Black Sea... it's pleasant enough. It'll probably sound great on a decent setup (hi fi stereo, headphones, etc.)
  5. Oversteps sounded fresh and exciting (big, different) when it came out... it was springtime, it felt fresh. d sho qub. SIGN, not so much. it feels a lil stale, rote. i'll take formulaic AFX over this, thirty-five times out of thirty-six. maybe [SIGN]'ll sound better on the stereo?
  6. everything i've read on watmm indicates that the physical media "dispatches" are typically delayed upon the release of various Warp albums
  7. purchased SIGN on Bandcamp... no pre-release download available?
  8. nah, there's no space / breathing room
  9. ae_live_melbourne (2018) >>>>>>>> SIGN
  10. Guessing that this may have already been shared here... if not, enjoy (!) .. it's a phenomenal album https://detund.bandcamp.com/album/moire
  11. foldfree casual made 0 impression upon me, on the initial listen. utterly unremarkable
  12. you'd think they could put this stuff out on physical (CD/vinyl/cassette) format - people would eat it up. i suppose Ae aren't keen to create more waste, i'unno
