Autechre - SIGN
Oct 16, 2020

Autechre going ambient is a pleasurable surprise wrapped in their latest album SIGN. SIGN has a relatively warm colour palette on its cover compared to the rest of their discography. The orange circle on the dark grey background can be inferred as a portal to another dimension. SIGN can be interpreted as sign of a new era, and this album showcases a new adventurous direction which Autechre is heading to.
The first half of the album contains complex, mechanical glitches, while the second half contains ambient tunes. SIGN is the warmest Autechre album in a long time, after the release of the cold and dissonant Exai, the elseq albums and NTS sessions. The warm ambient soundscapes juxtapose perfectly with the cold mechanical glitches in this album. The album is also meticulously layered and has a well progression.
There are some great tunes here and there, but the album slightly drags as it goes, albeit being their shortest in ten years. However, SIGN is after all an another nice addition to the duo's consistent discography.
