Album Review

Over the course of their career, Autechre have proven themselves to be masters of the unexpected, constantly evolving their sound in ways that are often perplexing, pushing the envelope in directions that listeners didn’t even know existed. While their albums typically represented new sonic leaps, the five-disc box set, EPs 1991-2002, captures those moments between the leaps, showcasing the English duo's experiments as they transitioned from budding techno tinkerers to mad scientists of the highest order. The set begins with their first single, 1991’s Cavity Job, which marks the first time this rare release has been issued on CD. Also included are Basscad EP (1994), Anti EP (1994), Garbage (1995), Anvil Vapre (1995), Peel Session (1995), Envane (1997), Cichli Suite (1997), EP7 (1999), Peel Session 2 (1999), and Gantz Graf (2002). While the early EPs off a nice reminder of Autechre’s roots in techno and hip-hop, it’s not until the later discs that things really seem to heat up for them, with EP7 ringing in the current, more generative sound that found them moving further away from anything resembling a traditional structure in favor of a style that’s more atonal and percussive, eventually culminating in the spastic, constantly shifting aural assault of “Gantz Graf.” What really ties the set together, however, is the packaging. Stark, minimal, and austere, the collection has a physical presence that seems to embody the spirit of the band, offering no explanations or assistance in the way of liner notes or even a detailed trac klist that points out what songs come from which albums. Instead, like Autechre themselves, EPs 1991-2002 simply presents the listener with the music the band has made and lets them come to grips with it on their own terms, allowing them to draw their own conclusions about what they’re hearing without any unnecessary assistance from its creators.

Customer Reviews

More musical integrity...

...than ellipsoid polymers lack symmetry....I'm grateful for the rerelease of autechres formative eps whose retro-nods remain, for many, cutting edge...possesses the endless invention of discarnate genius....thank you warp and goddess bless you and all who sail from you...xx

hmmmmm

Autechre are one of those electronic acts that i do admire rather than love

somehow they have made themselves untouchable in cool music circles

i do respect the way they stick to their guns and make the music they want to

but there is always a feeling of "emperors new clothes"

the way they have avoided even accidentally creating a melody is an achievement of sorts

good if you like it

but personaly i think its a load of old tosh.

Biography

Formed: 1987 in Rochdale, Lancashire, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Like Aphex Twin, Autechre were about as close to being experimental techno superstars as the tenets of their genre and the limitations of their audience allowed. Through a series of full-length works and a smattering of EPs on Warp, Clear, and their own Skam label, Autechre consistently garnered the praise of press and public alike. Unlike many of their more club-bound colleagues, however, Autechre's Sean Booth and Rob Brown had roots planted firmly in American electro, and though the more mood-based,...
