Aphex Twin Answers Questions From Caribou, Nicolas Jaar, Skrillex; Says He’s Developing Mutant Music Software

Before returning with his triumphant new album SYRO, Aphex Twin shared a list of all the gear he'd used to make the music. It is long and obscure, and it could honestly be a list of alien technology for all I know. If Richard D. James ever gets around to putting together another… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2014

Music is a messy thing. There's too much of it, too many genres, too many ideas, for anyone to make sense out of all of it -- or even to hear all of it. The idea of imposing a narrative on 365 days of music, of making sense of a whole year, is a fool'… More »

Aphex Twin Shares Dozens Of Unreleased Tracks

If his recent interview with Dave Noyze is any indication, there are three things that Aphex Twin loves to do in interviews: say ridiculous shit, talk shop, and put out a million unreleased tracks. Now, the second part of that already massive interview has been posted online, and while Richard D. James kept… More »

Aphex Twin Doubles Down On 9/11 Truther Comments, Shares Music By His 6-Year-Old Son

A month ago Aphex Twin mastermind Richard D. James offered some vague comments in an interview that suggested he might believe 9/11 was an inside job. In a new Q&A with his friend Dave Noyze at Noyzelab, James clarified his views on the matter -- kind of -- and it sure sounds like… More »

David Rees’ Aphex Swift Is The Best Aphex Twin/Taylor Swift Mashup Album Of The Year So Far

Mixing together Aphex Twin and Taylor Swift is a weird idea at first, but it makes so much sense the more that you think about it. They may be pretty far apart sonically, but both of them have released albums this year that challenged the boundaries of where pop music can go. Enter cartoonist David… More »

Aphex Twin Albums From Worst To Best

As any dyed-in-the-wool Aphex Twin fan worth their weight in trivia answers will tell you, there's really no such thing as a bad album written by Richard D. James. Sure, some are better than others, and there are probably some you don't even like that much. But a bad record from modern electronic music's preeminent… More »

Is Aphex Twin A 9/11 Truther?

Aphex Twin may be the visionary who changed dance music and who released one of the year's best albums. But he is also a socially awkward white man who owns lots of computer equipment. And as such, maybe it's not a surprise that he "absolutely" believes the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. A… More »

Premature Evaluation: Aphex Twin SYRO

Here's how fucking weird 2014 is: Aphex Twin returned from a decade-long exile with a new album, and the thing sounds comforting. If you're old enough, you probably remember hearing a new Aphex track for the first time and having the old "Wh-wh-what the fuck is happening here?!?" reaction. He made music that sounded impossible,… More »

This week brought a small avalanche of new songs from big-ticket names. And four of the tracks that made our list of the 5 Best Songs Of The Week come from such artists -- it easily could have been a full five-for-five if we weren't divided on the new Iceage single ... or the… More »

Aphex Twin – “Minipops 67 [120.2][Source Field Mix]“

This is the first Aphex Twin song in 13 years, and it shows. That hauntingly altered voice, those glimmering pianos, and an off-balance sense of forward motion mark "minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]" as undoubtedly the work of experimental electronic pioneer Richard D. James. But there is a sense of completing the circle here too,… More »
