    An album of their most beautiful tracks. [Dec 2020, p.27]

    ‘SIGN’ is an album that doesn’t just get under your skin, but in your head. If you give it enough time it will own, you and you will feel better for it. Autechre have returned and the wait was definitely worth it.

    With SIGN, Autechre have managed to do something that machines can’t do nearly as well as humans: surprise us.

    Simply put, no one does electronic music quite like Autechre.

    SIGN is a welcome detour, a diversion, and in these difficult and complicated times, a salve of sorts. It’s as close to chill-out music as the duo are ever likely to get, making it the perfect Autechre album for 2020.

    While some may miss the utter, blistering, angular noise-scapes of past Autechre albums, be assured that this album is no less Autechre. Despite being, arguably, their most accessible album in over a decade, we are still left with a set of 10 tracks that are just as unpredictable and labyrinthine as ever, and a duo who is trying to work in a slightly different avenue.

    There are times when Sign truly soars, though it never manages to eclipse what’s now a crowded sonic milieu.
