10 Songs, 47 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

If you're skeptical about Autechre's decision to release two albums in less than four months, well, don't be. In fact, some longtime fans may even consider Move of Ten a better record than its rather epic companion piece, Oversteps. Why? Because it gets to the point faster, riding tidal waves of future-shocked funk and torrential acid tones for 10 tracks and a little more than 45 minutes. The only breathers are brief ones, from the stargazing soundscapes of "Iris Was a Pupil" to the uneasy listening of "Ylm0." Other than that, the IDM icons seem to have everything set to hyper-speed, as highly complex hooks are scrapped from some of the craziest headphone candy you'll unwrap all year. And hey, if you miss vintage Autechre records like Amber and Incunabula, there's always "M62" — a sleek & simple battering-ram beat, pinned to ambient techno textures that'll have you reaching for your old Aphex Twin 12-inches as well.

Indescribable.

I love Autechre. It's impossible to describe the emotions that their music brings out. This 2010 release "Move of Ten" is a remarkable album. It stands well on it's own, and also as a brilliant companion piece to the album "Oversteps", released just a few months prior to this one.

Every one of Autechre's albums is such a singular vision. You really need to listen to the whole thing from beginning to end to get a full appreciation of it. This is definitely not something to pick your favorite song and just have that - it needs to be experienced as a whole.

Other than that, jump in and enjoy. Highly recommended - strange and beautiful. If you like this, check out 2008's amazing "Quaristice." That record , to me, really represented a turning point for this duo.

i was listening to this the other day and a friend mentioned how relaxing it was. man, its been a long time since ae has been described as relaxing. great stuff. listening to this record really brings back memories of the late great IDM movement of the mid '90's

Surprise

Usually in the loop anything Ae but this one slipped in on me. Quite the companion piece to osteps. If u r in the know about texture, magic and pure artistic discipline that is Ae.... You will be rewarded once again.... Highly reccommended!
