psin AM makes an excellent counterpart to M62 from Move of Ten, another jammy jam laid over/under a four-on-the-floor beat, though a more sedate one.

I like this comparison, love both of these tracks! I always enjoy when they do something really stripped down and embrace the subtlety. I was listening to MoT the other morning and was reminded how much I love nearly every second of it.

Sign turns 1 tomorrow. Listening on my drive to work on rainy and cold fall day. Despite how lush the album is, it’s a fall album through and through. Very fond memories of this time last year. 
 

I’ll be mainlining this all weekend.

looked at a couple reviews of SIGN again and this one kinda nailed this bit imo:

Quote

Only time will tell if ‘SIGN’ is as lauded as ‘Incunabula’, ‘Tri Repeate’ or ‘Confield’, but after these initial dalliances with it I have to admit that it is their most immediate and enjoyable album to date. The music has a distant, crushing vibe to it, that is totally captivating, but the music isn’t claustrophobic. It gives itself, and the listen, room to breathe and move. In the past their album tended to come at you, or to overwhelm before you had a chance to make your mind up about them. Here, Brown and Booth allow you to settle into the tracks before they start twisting the screw. And it works.

(except for the bit about Incunabula being lauded lol i mean i maybe at the time it came out?)

edit: also weird grammatical errors made it to publishing and haven't been corrected obv. looks almost as bad as one of my posts.

Aye, I'll be heading out for some nice autumnal walks with SIGN as the soundtrack. si00 has been doing it for me this weekend.

God damn, I bloody love Ae. Despite all the new music I get, and all the great stuff I have in my collection, I always return to Ae.

SIGN is awesome.

Currently my fav of the album, one of those ae tracks that's nearly impenetrable at first, but once you get inside it just keeps giving and giving

...Vangelis is certainly not the first thing that comes to mind hearing autechre, yet n cur has something, both in the melody and in the cold spatiality, that reminds me of this, from the Antarctica soundtrack

Good track but how to play anything after r cazt? Only all end kinda works or something completely different like 6-36

Probably just a coincidence but, this bit 4 seconds in here:

Sounds just like the background synth here most clearly heard at 5:18 (but sped up a bit):

Ok, interesting/good to know. I thought they were done with hardware. I don't know enough about this stuff to have an opinion, but I think it's still useful to have context of how things were made. I wonder how this fits into the evolution of "the system" tho?

Vangelis did come to mind listening to Ae somewhat recently for me listening to wetgelis casual interval.

Sonically, it feels like a snippet of eastre (as far as S&R are concerned) but this piece you've shared by the Greek synth maestro (eat shit Yanni team Vangelis all the way lol) does sound like a number of things the lads have done recently in a number of facets, some of the patches (both some of the early twinkles and the pads), as well as something in its melodic sense. Good call, this is a truly beautiful piece. I'll have to check out the rest of this score.
