New album's out and rather good. Quite Oversteps-like in the sounds it uses, very light on beats, some massive sounding synths.

It's kind of what I actually wanted Oversteps to sound like. Always felt that was a little too shiny, a lot more grit in the textures this time.
Fan theory is that its partner album with green art - which is probably due next year - will be the complex beaty one.

Beats seems the natural focus for the companion album, which kind of makes me hope they spring something more surprising. That said, an album of tt1pd style bangers would be a-ok.

Really wanted to love this but so far I'm just not that into it, it feels very safe and kind of forgettable. Tracks like F7 and esc desc don't do anything for me and unfortunately seem like aimless synth noodling. Though I do like the final minute or so of F7 when it goes a bit Rae.
I think the flow of the album is surprisingly awkward, aside from M4 Lema and r cazt which are clearly defined opening and closing tracks, most tracks could really go in any order to little effect because they're so abrupt and it feels like each has its own idea/sound that, to me at least, don't carry over to build up to one whole great experience.
I guess overall I'd like the beat-y tracks to bang harder and the pretty, melodic tracks to be more melodically progressive.

best tracks: M4 Lema, si00, au14, gr4, r cazt
worst tracks: F7, esc desc

I heard a song from 1997 by Autechre the other day it literally sounded about a month old.
I Like their early 90s material  i think they went a bit too abstract in the early  00.s but their later stuff Quarstice??  sounded really good to me.

really like their recent more drone like Ambient stuff too.
 their 2016 European tour recordings are really interesting very, very minimal, uncomfortable and unsettling can be rather scary. slow burning.
