Four Tet – Rounds

I picked up Four Tet‘s Rounds, and it’s really good.

After multiple listens, the best description I can give is the following: this is the sound you’d expect if DJ Shadow and Aphex Twin sat down on a Sunday afternoon to make an album together. Every track has the quirky, sometimes blippy, emotive-in-its-abstraction feel of Aphex Twin, but it also has the beat-minded feel of Shadow’s work. Any time I think a track sounds overwhelmingly like one of them, I can imagine the other leaning over their shoulder and saying, “Why don’t you add this?”

The end result is defintely worth a listen.
