Elec­tron­ica’s malevlo­lent munchkin is back with the ill be­hav­iour

Australian T3 - - PLAY -

Only Richard D James’ sec­ond “proper” al­bum this mil­len­nium, Syro picks up right where 2001’s Drukqs left off. So we get 12 more ex­am­ples of Aphex’s ge­nius for barely dis­guis­ing great melodies un­der a moun­tain of ra­chet­ing glitches and de­tuned vo­cal noises, then giv­ing the re­sults alien­at­ing ti­tles. Face it, no­body’s go­ing to go up to a DJ and say, “Hey mate, can you play 4 Bit 9d Api+e+6 (126.26) for my girl­friend,” are they? $20 CD, $17 MP3, out now
