NTS Sessions 4, first half, by Autechre.
Label Link: NTS Sessions 1-4
Number 8 in the wire magazine (@thewiremagazine) Top 50 releases of 2018.
Several shorter songs and one longer one, mark the beginning of the end of the NTS Sessions.
Primarily, so far, Disk 4 is marked by a floatier, ambient feel. Washes of keyboard synth and reverb-ed echoing percussion fade in and out through the space of the pieces.
Several parts feel as if they were recorded underwater or in a storm.
If there was any hope that this would morph into a commercially saleable dance album, they have now been dashed.
