autechre: "see on see"

Autechre's Oversteps CD has quickly become one of my favorite LPs of the year so far, and they already have a new one scheduled for release this summer called "Move of Ten". Two albums from Ae in one year? Unheard of ! I can't say I was too thrilled by the sneak peak track "y7", but maybe the rest of the album will be better, or maybe not. In the meantime, some of the standout tracks on Oversteps include "see on see", which in my opinion is an instant Autechre classic, destined to be on future listener's lists some ten, twenty, thirty years from now. To quote one fan's comment about this song: "Autechre fills my heart and soul with light and darkness, day after day, month after month, year after year." Amen to that.
