I've got a few tracks already and really like them, where do I go album-wise?
What a question.
Depends at what point you've 'entered' Autechre?
First album, Incunabula, is the most accessible.
Second album, Amber, is also very accessible. Both quite ambient techno, but with nice clattering rhythms/percussion.
Then they start to veer more and more leftfield as the albums tick by. Culminating in Intilted. Hard work.
I have always been fascinated with Autechre and their approach to music making; and I read other fans' views. I interpret these as basically stating that their most weird stuff is like the aural equivalent of one of those 3D pictures that you stare at for a while and they just seem like a mess; then all of a sudden everything clicks, falls into place and you "SEE".
This might well be bollocks.
Its where I started, I think it's the perfect balance between challenging and accessible, and it's very beautiful in places. Oh and contains Eutow. Tune.
Gotta agree wi dat
