Need some good music like Autechre

Once upon a time as I asked around for bands that sound like Panasonic.  Someone recommended Bigod 20.  I subsequently quit asking for sounds like suggestions.  

When you find something really good like AE, you're not going to find a 'sound-a-like' that measures up, even if remotely in the same ballpark.  Real talent will sound like its own unique self.

It's really more of an "if you like autechre then you might also like this" thread, which is quite a bit more broad and interesting than "music that sounds like autechre" innit

Or things that resonate with one aspect of ae but don't necessarily "sound like" them

I take this tread even more broadly: if I find something that I think stands out for something, and that sparks my curiosity, there is a chance that the same thing could be true for other users. The link with autechre, in this case, is the mere fact that it's music that requires some attention to be assimilated and that is cool to me, a guy addicted to ae.

New Cristian Vogel album is really good. Not like autechre, more like Cristian Vogel. But if you like autechre, you might also like:

Wrt the 'what is the point of this thread' question, yeah, stuff that sounds like an artist you love specifically because they are so singular does seem self defeating. For me it's more a question of does the music engender some of the same feelings that I get from listening to autechre, or music that although superficially different appears to share specific traits, to give an example: a perceived kinship in song structures and approach to time/duration between late period ae and On The Corner era Miles.

This recommendation may seem totally unrelated to Autechre but some days ago I had the chance to see the Netherlands Dans Theater contemporary dance company in Barcelona and I have to say I have never experienced such a feeling of absurdity, strangeness and wonder (that feeling of recognizing the elements but seeing them working in a totally unexpected way) as watching Bedroom Folk live, except from a handful of artists such as Autechre or Lynch:

The preview doesn’t make it justice at all. 
Me and my partner looked at each other afterwards not really understanding what we have just seen but knowing it has been extraordinary for sure. Check them out in Europe, I think they are touring or something.
