EDITORS’ NOTES

During their stunningly varied and adventurous career, Andy Turner and Ed Handley have issued a string of releases that have shaped the vanguard of British electronic music. With Reachy Prints, Plaid offers a striking follow-up to 2011’s Scintilli, presenting deeply textured electronic grooves, vivid melodies and ethereal production. After opening with the delicate shimmer of “Oh” and the understated, fluttering groove of “Hawkmoth”, the album takes a dark turn with the warped bass synths and lurching, insistent patterns of “Nafovanny”. The blithe “Matin Lunaire” brightens things up, while the duo’s dusky tracks—include the looming, bass-heavy fog of “Ropen” and the funky closer, “Liverpool St”—help make Reachy Prints a rousing success.

i think plaid should...

jump on the PC music bandwagon. just double your BPM setting, and you’re pretty much there. that would be pretty awesome. this is not a joke. would love to hear that.

What Autechre should have evolved into.

Those of you who remember Autechre back in the 90's know exactly what I'm talking about. Back when they used to do IDM.

This album is like that. Except better, in a Plaid kind of style.

Get it. You won't regret it.
