  Autechre - Untilted  
     
 
Autechre - Untitled

More abstract off-kilter rythyms from Autechre. This is definitely music for the modern age. At first listen this sounds like chaos and electro wanking.

But where there's chaos there's also order, & continued listening reveals complex but precise beats, sounds, organizational sequences. Patience, grasshopper.

I was listening to this at work one day when a guy I work with came into my office and started talking to me. He overheard Ipacial Section and said is this a real song? I said yes and although he's musically literate, he seemed amused by the fact that the music was so abstract and unconvential that it had been reduced to pure sound, sometimes resembling the structure of a song. It's as if they sliced open a drum machine and now there's rythym loops spilling out all over the floor.

And that's the best way to describe Untilted. Experimental, reaching, transitional, open-ended, and out there. If you’re the kind of person who wants to listen to a song that has a verse-chorus-verse style to it, this kind of music might drive you crazy as you wait for some sort of conventional structure to appear, because it won’t.

If you like experimentation, sounds, abstract electronic stuff, you'll love this. It’s got bassy lows and sharp highs, and is anything but ordinary. The more you listen, the more you realize what's behind the deconstruction. Its intent is to lift the lid off of the music, lift out the messy beating heart and hold it up before the musical masses.

RATING: *****  4 out of 5 stars
