Mùm - Yesterday was dramatic, today is ok and Finally we are no one.

 

Not really anything like ae but both good albums in their own right, especially Finally We Are No One

 

 

When i listen to Yesterday was dramatic, some tracks have a kind of ae flavor to my ears. They've reached a more adult, subtile sound with Finally we are no one.

FX randomiz makes some really weird but melodic processing heavy electronic music. He's only put out one solo full length but i think it stands up pretty good for being over 10 years old.

sorry if these have been suggested before

 

caribou - old stuff is more electronic, new stuff he uses more live instruments, the guy is a phenomenal musician though, especially on drums

tortoise - jazzy, laid back groovy music with a good amount of layers. Ae remixed 2 of their tracks, actually.

cepia - this stuff isn't insanely technical or genius or deserving of a subforum, but this guy knows how to write good idm tracks. he plays with dynamics very well

 

also, non-idm:

explosions in the sky - 5 piece, drum, bass, 3 guitars - these guys are not very technical at all, in fact a lot of their lines remind me of simple idm synth lines, but i have never ever seen any band so good at controlling dynamics.

i don't think any of the bands you described are in any way similar to autechre, but i freakin' love caribou, tortoise and explosions in the sky.

they are similar to Ae to me in a lot of strange ways.

 

i don't want to be thehauntingsoul so i won't go into it. i'd say early caribou isn't too far from some lp5/ep7 Ae sounds though.

brownout is seriously one of the most interesting albums i've heard in a looong time.

 

the whole thing is so... underwater or underground or to be even more specific: In one of those underground tributaries.

i've really been digging mouse on mars, i got varcharz and audiotacker. also finally got orbital - in sides, that's already a classic for me. arovane's tides is also very good, i'm probably going to get a ton of their stuff asap.

Things that are in the vicinity of musical quality to Autechre, to me:

 

non-"electronic"-

My Bloody Valentine - Loveless

Talk Talk - Laughing Stock

John Coltrane - Interstellar Space

John Coltrane - Ascension

Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch

Pharoah Sanders - Karma

Claude Debussy - La Mer

 

(non-obvious) electronic-

gas - pop

anything by lithops

anything by microstoria

anything by oval

ANYthing by Mouse on Mars, with my favorite being Autoauditacker

 

believe it or not, Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding, by Venetian Snares, is pretty fantastic

 

Shpongle. Yup. Future Sound of London. For sure.

 

I think early Chemical Brothers is amazing. Maybe that's because it's my childhood love, but Dig Your Own Hole is pretty awesome.

 

EVERYBODY CHECK OUT TAKAgI MASAKATSU

 

trust me guys. specifically the album coeida

 

 

 

Kettel is pretty awesome too.

 

I've always found stuff like Arovane, Proem, and Four Tet to be pretty boring/no good. I should probably revisit that stuff sometime soon though.

Richard Devine is an obvious one (& other Schematic artists)

 

Just listened to the new Robert Logan, "Inscape", too. It's excellent. If you like Autechre you'll probably like this.

What are the best Apparat albums WITHOUT the gay singing? Some of the older stuff I've heard from him is good but at some point he turned into hip gay musics.

they are both better than "half decent". Probably no one mentioned them because neither sound like AE. I suggest you listen to both, and with an open mind.
