Winter Autechre

I know I'm not bringing anything new to the table by saying this but Confield is definitely a razor sharp ice filled tundra. In the best of ways

interesting. It sounds like old machinery in dry bushland, taken over by alien organisms/insects to me!
Insects for sure! I guess mine are just the insects that thrive at sub freezing temps :)

 

But you know it only makes sense your finding the polar opposites of season, Australia's summer is my winter, plus I hear they call red "blue" there

And hamburgers eat people

Confield is an ancient relic that seems impossible to decipher, and when you finally do it's overwhelmingly pleasurable.

 

Oversteps is the only autechre that's almost exclusively wintry. That said it's also perfect night music.

Also, looking forward to a session with L event/dilankrex remix out in a snowstorm this winter. Inside plenty of warm clothes (it's all about the layers!) with a thermos of hot tea and a joint

No seasons associations here. Never.

Only Lentic Catachresis could be some kind of Antarctica snow storm.

 

I'd rather recommend you Ralph Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 7, "Sinfonia Antarctica" btw. - It's cold and terrifying.

This might seem blasphemous, but winter is probably the season that I least listen to Autechre. Don't know why exactly, although I guess their last few LPs have all been late summer releases in the southern hemisphere, so maybe a slight burnout in winter. I associate Autechre listening with spring/winter/autumn. I also don't associate any full Autechre albums with any seasons, although Oversteps to me suits a bright sunny day walk in the country, among the cows and all that. Some ae tracks evoke Antarctic imagery in me, but more summer Antarctic than wintry chill.

Quaristice.Quadrange.ep.ae giving me a warm fuzzy feeling on this cold wintry night. I always kinda bypass Quaristice and it's associated versions as I never took to that album. Now I'm finding the error of my ways!

Oversteps is very much a winter album for me, but think that may be because it properly clicked with me winter 2010 which in the UK was snowy and icey as fuck. Oversteps was always on my car stero that winter battling through the elements and sounded awesome with the wintery scenery

I had taken quite a long break from autechre, but yesterday we got the first good snow here. This time I cranked up Chiastic Slide and damn did it feel all warm and crackly and really hit the spot perfectly. 

edit: been reading a lot of older threads since splesh has bumped 247 of them and it seems that quadrange is on a january pattern. I do wish there was a physical version of that.

Rettic AC has crunchy digital snow.
