Autechre - L-Event

Autechre have a long history of releasing impressive standalone EPs, from the early brilliance of 1994's Anti, to the unusual rhythms of 1997's Cichlisuite and sci-fi electronics of 2010's Move of Ten. L Event, a four-track EP with artwork from long-time collaborators The Designers Republic, continues this trend. Despite the sci-fi electronics, there's something almost tear-jerking about the melancholic melodies of ''Newbound'', while ''Tac Lacora'' sounds like an invitation to dance (though, inevitably, only jazz dancers on speed need try it). The spooky ''M39 Diffain'' and discordant ''Osla For N'' are impressive, too.
