The follow up to 2003?s critically lauded Draft 7.30, Autechre?s eighth full album is a dense yet elegantly expansive work that ripples with some of the duo?s key signatures: epileptic rhythmic counterpoints, complex, spiralling melodic cells, immense tectonic shifts in the low end, dagger sharp glacial crackles in the upper registers.

 Music preview: Autechre - Salon
Over the course of Sean Booth's and Rob Brown's career, from the 1993 release of their debut album "Incunabula" to the release of their last album, "Confield" (2001), synth sounds in Autechre's music have largely been demoted to a supporting role while drum tracks have leapt into the foreground.
