AUTECHRE album update

Earlier today Warp sent out an email with additional info about Quaristice

First and most important - the album is available for download TODAY from bleep (I'll give you a few seconds to head over there and get your copy)

Second there are going to be a few different formats available:

1- 2x 12" version

2- 2 disc set

But most importantly a box set* (which as of NOW has sold out)

Strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide. This is the 20 track Quaristice album, plus an extra CD containing 11 different versions of selected tracks. These tracks are all produced by Autechre and are exclusive to this edition of the album.
The double CD set comes in a Designers Republic styled, photo-etched, 0.4mm steel slipcase with foil blocked inner gatefold wallet. Full images of the artwork coming soon.

The two other formats are still available for pre-order, I would suggest you do so now :)

*yes, I did get one of the limited editions

By far the coolest thing I have seen all week.

Turn down the volume if you are web-surfing at work.

The video was put together by The Bastard Fairies. A band of cool mutant popsters (who incidentally are giving away a 12 track sampler from their debut album Memento Mori at the minute) that included a bit of one of their songs at the end of the viddie.

(It may actually rival the now infamous Will Ferrel Landlady video from last year. )

Worth checking out, and hey who doesn't love free music on a Saturday morning?
