The Most Plaid Sounding Autechre Song?

Recommended Posts

Okay so I think everyone knows I'm a big fan of Plaid and how they're best IDM act I've listened to, but I also really love Autechre, and been thinking of songs from their varied discography that sounds closest to Plaid, and so far I feel Melve is an easy one, and for some reason Chimer 1-5-1 reminds me of a collab track with Plaid, since the main beat reminds me of the kind of softer sounding beats Plaid does in albums like The Digging Remedy.

You got any others, guys?

Or this one because it doesn't really sound like autechre and it's kind of playful

Ae? No. But try:

Exm - 5 (Modulus)

IMO Plaid vibes there.

Just realized Nil is definitely Plaid-like in the synths once the beat fully kicks in. I know Plaid gets a kick out of Amber in general so I can see why.

I disagree. Plaid almost never has two- or more-part songs. Their songs are always based and expanding on one polyphonic idea. Stop Look Listen has (at least) three distinctive parts, it's like a miniature symphony in structure. Nothing like Plaid ever did.

I don't really know if I can define that "Plaid-sound"... what should that be like? I can't recall anything from Ae that sounds like "Rakimou" tbh... there are some tracks of both artists that have chimes-sounds and polyphony, but I could call those Plaid-tracks also "Autechre-like" with the same relevancy.

But I think the basic vibe and approach of the two are very different. Like 'em both.

Ayyy well let's just agree to disagree then, I made that post literally 9 minutes after the OP and twas just the first thing that fired through my THC-addled neurons (and probably just that happy pling-plong melody in the beginning at that). It just sounds plaid-ish IMHO, no burden of proof on these slouchy shoulders.

Pretty much everything you posted there is right, I agree that the 'chre Bros and Plaid Pals approach composition and structure very differently and that it's reflected in their respective sounds.

Yeah, we can agree that we agree then. ? I saw where you were coming from of course, just wanted to start my post somewhere. ?

it seems to me that the paths of Plaid and Ae have approached with Chirality / can't kill us remixes and syptixed ...at least rhythmically

just realized how amazing of avtrack Syptixed is as a track, gonna raise my 8 to a 10/10 ?
