"Peel Sessions 2 08/09/99"
A fabulous release from the always excellent electronic duo Autechre. Their spooky, splattery brand of twisted techno weaves complex sonic patterns and dizzying rhythms that are challenging; yet strangely catchy. This particular set of recordings finds the group in not so much a "let's mash every one's heads together with this impossibly broken beat" kind of ordeal; and more of a late night alien text-messaging rendezvous. Very high quality listening and kicks Boards Of Canada's ass any day, if you ask me.
