I’m also going to try something new. Every so often, I’m going to feature an artist that I’ve been listening to a lot lately, or one that’s influenced me in some way. So without further ado, today’s artist is Autechre, and the album is “Amber”.

Admittedly, this album doesn’t quite get as much play as, say, Tri Repetae ++, but it’s still a great album nonetheless. It’s Autechre’s sophmore release, and shows a great deal of progression compared to their first album Incunabula.

The overall mood of the album is a little darker, and the production of the beats are more cleaner. There is more focus on developing atmospheres and textures than the melodies of Incunabula. Overall, I probably give this album 7 out of 10 stars.
