alco review by alco:   this is the new "autechre" album by them, the brothers. it's called "sign" which is short for "signs." i believe this is an m night shaymalan (or whatever) reference a

the autechre brothers. "the signs" in 2020. october. i forget the date. i'm meeting up with them, the "boys" of autechre. sean, the one who thinks its sick to make beats super wacky is smoking a cigar

I guess the warm colors indicate a lush sounding, melodic, welcoming album. So hyped for this and what's next !

I thought sean said something about rebuilding their whole system. That led me to believe this would be entirely new sounding stuff but the art references the onesix stuff. Maybe more polished production but still in that sound palette?

I know few people have said this could be continuation of onesix sound but based on absolutely nothing at all, I have a strong feeling this album will be them handing us a new bunch of parameters and sound very different from last few releases!

TBH I just read it as their logo currently, rather than attaching it to the one six stuff.

Forgive my unsteady mouse hand. I had to do it left handed as I'm still fapping over the news of SIGN

Based on absolutely no evidence whatsoever, I think the sound will land somewhere between Onesix and Exai. I'd be ecstatic over a return to their more melodic sound but I think those days are behind them. Massively hyped for this all the same, and am confident I'll like it no matter what direction they go with it. 

Lots of chatter on the artwork, which you know, sure. It could be more interesting. But I think it'll fit the aesthetic of the album and nobody will care a week after it's out.

maybe ... but the idea of a logo in a general sense is something that I find not very close to Ae, it has a pop heritage of a marketing nature that perhaps could have been plausible in the 90s (even if, in truth, every graphic has its own identity , there has never been an identifiable repetition in a logo, not even in the past), but today it seems to me a distant thing . Well, I can be wrong.

This, I guess it's just their logo. And yes Sean was talking about 100% new stuff and a departure from the" Exai to NTS era".

Did he say this during the Mixlr event?

Seems like the track lengths are too short to suggest a continuation of that vein anyway. So entirely new stuff is likely.

Artwork looks like an outline of Ed Sheeran's stupid head.

I don't know why but this was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the cover

Yes, I think this was during the Mixlr or twitch event. 

also I remember him saying that the stuff he was playing on twitch was a lure or something and that the new stuff will sound nothing like it...

They probably spent months designing / tweaking that logo and watmm has reduced it to a bunch of food based meme's within 24 hours.
