13 Feb 2008, 03:55 by mrkvmAutechre : Tri Repetae (1995)
Continuing my survey of the Autechre discography.
By the time I had Tri Repetae, I was a full-blown IDM/electronic fan and was pretty enamored of Warp Records in general. Though I have to admit that I was only ever a mild Aphex Twin fan. For whatever reason, the other artists doing this sort of thing at the time were much more interesting to me, and Autechre were probably at the top of the list.
This album is often called out as the pinnacle of Autechre's career. I can see why that's the case. In comparison to the later works, which are much more "difficult" listens, this still feels extremely accessible.
Dael and Clipper start the album off with driving beats. It's difficult to sit still in my chair with these tunes on the headphones (the caffeine probably doesn't help either). That sinuous, ominous-sounding hum which weaves its way through Clipper is the touch that turns it into a brilliant track for me.
