Aphex Twin, the gurning genius, is back in a big way with 'Syro', his first new LP since 'Drukqs' (2001).
Culled from his legendary trove of recordings, it's apparently "about a fifth" of what he's done in the last 10 years, "‚Ä¶one album out of many possible ones", according to his interview with Rolling Stone.
Leaning heavy on trademark breakbeat funk and hyper-jazzy/classical arrangements for the most, and saving one saunter into pastoral piano realms for the vinegar strokes of 'aisatsana'. Plus there is the bruk-techno torque of 'Produk 29', and the refractive, penultimate junglism 's950tx16wasr10 [earth portal mix] ready for the dance floors.
Deluxe Triple gatefold, with printed inners. Includes download code.
