The long-awaited reissue of the 5th album "LP5" by the solitary charisma Autechre. Originally released in 1998, a must-have for fans who made the name known to the world. Since no title was printed anywhere on the artwork, it came to be called "LP5" in keeping with the later released EP work "EP7".

Landing in 1998 between the endlessly imitated Chiastic Slide (1996) and the deceptively impenetrable ‘Confield’ (2001), LP5 and the following year’s EP7 feature some of Ae’s most effortlessly fucked rhythm mechanics; less abstract than much of what came after it, more complex and interwoven than what preceded it - just end-to-end brilliance.

Arriving at a time when bedroom producers were still busy trying to emulate the glitched prism of Chiastic Slide, LP5 unexpectedly shifted perspective in typical Ae style, seemingly toning down the DSP’s and slowly funnelling into the algorithmic-aping abstraction of their new millennial output lying in wait just around the corner. LP5 was the last in a run of albums that still allowed harmonic and melodic logic to penetrate their arrangements - with a funked/jerking emphasis that made for some of the most advanced and propulsive music of their career. — (via Boomkat)
