This gem always gets lost in the shuffle. If it were part of NTS - it would get so much more love. Fantastic track...

Autechre has done a Malevich sequence - Circle (Oversteps), Black Square (Exai), Cross (Plus Sign).

1923-Black-Square-Cross-Circle-by-Kazimi

Surely it’s reference to a PlayStation controller as these are the albums made on Music2000 on PS1....

 

not to be outdone by Richards Novation synth, the boys are working with Sony on a PlayStation pad with a midi port.

 

X4 👈🏻

all you bitches moaning about SIGN not having enough beets. well there are bare beets in PLUS. X4 is chock full of sick beets

 

How to Cook Beets (3 Best Ways!) – A Couple Cooks

 

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!  :emotawesomepm9::emotawesomepm9::emotawesomepm9::emotawesomepm9::emotawesomepm9:

well, i still hear reminiscences of ep7 and confield too, but when i posted the analogy between left blank and ecol 4 i started collecting facepalms :facepalm:

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!

just took a walk with this one headphones - first impression: this is one of the best collections of tracks they've put out.

I still enjoy SIGN very very much - it's got its own unique, intricate sound-world with tons of subtle progression - yet I've found myself instantly invested in the complex, layered, more upfront compositions on this new album.

Perhaps my fav aspect about PLUS is how fresh it sounds - a welcome surprise after the Exai-elseq-NTS continuum, which all seemed to be cut from the same cloth (at least to me)

can't wait to deep-dive into these two new records.

Again: Sean & Rob, thanks!

lux 106 mod more like lush 106 mod amirite 

But does that mean it's modulated? Or that the Juno 106 in question has been modded?

Alright... All caught up:

  • Title is a watmm meme
  • Beats
  • X4 is everyone's favourite
  • Comparisons to EP7 (in not really hearing it) 
  • Misuta Go hates everything

Just finished X4, enjoying the  album so far but the flow of it is harder to understand on first listen...

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

X4 and bladelores are both the same length, 12 minutes 21 seconds. Listening to them mixed together right now.

 

Edit: sounding pretty decent if dense. Technically, X4 is 12:21.361 and bladelores is 12:21.493, making it 132 milliseconds longer.  (Wikipedia reveals that 132 is the smallest Osiris number)

Just approaching the end of tm1open. At first i thought it was gonna be a throw away track. Now I think it might be my favourite so far. Strings at the end give me Envane vibes. Actually this is a really good ending track. It already makes me think of what came before in a different light. 

Overall what stood out to me the most was that SIGN was thick and syrupy and PLUS is far more sparse and dry. Like PLUS is the skeleton and SIGN is the flesh. Or SIGN is the ocean and PLUS is a desert (but like... At night). 

I look forward to listening to these on one sitting back to back... 

Again, a sincere thanks to Sean & Rob, very impressive stuff as always.
