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.

This pretty much is my favourite song, I have to admit. I love it to bits - in fact I have pulled the whole thing to bits in my head a million times and I do love every bit of it. I've heard it sampled a few times, I guess most famously on Public Enemy's Yo! Bum Rush the Show, but I think nothing beats the original.
2 Computer Soup –
Ha, this is actually an entire CD, completely unmarked with no tracklisting. I tagged all the tracks with the same title, cos I wasn't sure what else to do. It's not a very good album, and I don't listen to it much.
3 My Bloody Valentine – Don't Ask Why
Great song off the fantastic Glider Ep, which preceded Loveless. I first heard this on a Creation Records sampler called something like Staring at the Sun, and was blown away. I love the melody, the mood, the way it switches up to what could be a rock out and then holds back heeeeaps short of exploding. Coolness. …
