    • Altus - aural journeys for the mind's eye
Aphex Twin
« on: August 16, 2014, 09:58:52 AM »
I came across this article today about what sounds like an Aphex Twin publicity stunt.

I'm cautiously optimistic for something like Drukqs. Any Aphex Twin fans here?

It would be nice to hear some new material from Mr. Richard James. I hadn't realized how long it's been since his last release, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

I suppose it's a sign of the times now that Aphex Twin now shows up as the background music in many commercials these days. "Shiny Metal Rods" as the backdrop of an insurance ad is an evolution of some sort.  :)
There is no spoon. Which sucks because I have a pudding cup.

I've been getting all excited since the announcement, until I remembered that I didn't particularly love Drukqs. I mean, it was a decent enough album, but not that kind of thing to make me line up at midnight outside the record store the night before release day to make sure I get a copy, you know?

It's just good to know that he's going to get back to releasing music again.
