Was listening to this at work today and thought "Fuck me this is brilliant", there isn't a weak track on this release. Pencha is amazing especially.

 

Also, the case says 'Mechanically Reclaimed by Autechre', I'm curious, does this mean the tracks are remixes of earlier stuff? Specifically Tilapia which has that Cichli sounding synth.

 

Also, talk about how wicked this EP is.

 

the album is a quasi remix album based on the track Chichli from Chiastic Slide.

although to my ears it sounds like totally new work just like most of Ae's remix work.

 

i love the way ae will fuck about with source material like this, almost like a jazz musician would. although i can hear very little source material in there it sorta warms my electronic music wang to know that it is in there somewhere.

Yea, I only really hear any Cichli in two songs.

Nice acquisition, Cichlisuite's one of my favourite AE releases, it's like a condensed, more consistent LP5. Anti's awesome - first track is classic, and its third track is (AFAIK) AE's first experiment with unpredictable, non-repeating beats.

I've listened Cichlisuite for the first time a few nights ago. I really like it, definitely one of their best EPs!

Probably their best ambient type track. Although, I dont know what the hell ambient means, cause I think most of em are ambient.

 

But yea, Uviol is in my top five at least if not my top top top.

Krib is my least fav song off this release. But by no means bad. It's just that the other four songs are four of the greatest songs evar. lol fanboi alert lol

funny, as coincidence I was just listining to this today whilst reading a really interesting book on the nature of handedness (myself being a lefty). Fit the mood perfectly, tis indeed a brilliant ep

 

Memo to autechre: make more EPs.

I listen to this release almost everyday. It is great enough to be listened to seriously, but fun enough to be listened to while walking around, and short enough that it can often be listened to entirely on one driving trip. so it is always handy on the I-pod.

Nah, Krib is one of ae's most simple, direct, and beautiful tracks. It is hauntingly bittersweet to my ears and aural processing interface. Cichlisuite has five of the greatest tracks ever, and I think it is ae's most perfect ep release, not a single weak moment.

Rook, I think it's safe to say that you are the biggest Ae fanboy on this website.

Followed by asymmetrical head and me!

 

Seriously, Garbage is their most perfect release. I was listening to the EP a couple times lately and I must say this is pure genius. Cichlisuite is a runner up amongst their EPs, though.

This EP deserves a good old bump. As Aesterlingman said ages ago, the finale of 'Tilapia' is fucking amazing, and one of my favourite Ae moments ever. Timely bump too, as I had this EP playing on the pod the other morning and it felt great to remember how it blew me away the first time I heard it. No less impressive today.

completely agree, at least for eps. lp5 or chiastic are top albums for me.

but then there's envane....

Cichlisuite and Envane are probably my most listened to AE eps, and lately, Anvil Vapre. But I consider Gantz Graf to be their most innovative Ep.

 

 

Garbage is great though too lol.

 

And while we are at it, the so are the Peel Sessions.

 

I only have the CD version of EP7 so I never really consider it an ep.

 

 

I would say we are do for a healthy dose of Ae eps. Seriously..

Sadly, I am without this release. Can never find it. But Tilapia from the Vancouver download is amazing. How different is the album version? Cause all I recognize from Cichli is the synth sound. Thats some remixing job if its just Cichli remixed. But i once read in an interview that Autechre's early remixes were so cut up that the original song was unrecognizalbe. Rob or maybe Sean said "and thats when we decided just to make our own music, because we just stopped using the other songs". Or something to that fashion.

 

 

you can get it right now from warpmart
