Album Review

Released the same day as Autechre's Draft 7.30, the Iss:Sa EP from Gescom sounds not like outtakes from Autechre's album, but outtakes from the same sessions. And that's fine, because Sean Booth and Rob Brown, the Autechre boys, are also major players in Gescom.

Not the best place for beginners, this release is for completists only.
