Autechre, 'Quaristice' (Warp)

6
Quaristice
Critical Mass
Label: Warp

by Shannon Zimmerman

The more IDM acts mine cutout-bin luminaries the Art of Noise, the better. True, Autechre architects Sean Booth and Rob Brown specialize in harder, spazzier beats than those that powered that group's deathless '80s robo-jam "Close (to the Edit)."But get past glitchy irritants like "SonDEremawe" and an artful payoff of cerebral, booty-shaking decadence awaits on their ninth album."Tankakern" boasts heavy-breathing percussion and keyboard squiggles, while beatless set-opener "Altibzz" will make you love Booth and Brown for more than just their minds: Simultaneously melancholy and lascivious, it's pure aural pleasure.
