Aphex Twin – “tnodvood104”
Aphex Twin is continuing to crank out new music in odd and unexpected ways. Earlier this month, he shared two new tracks on a mysterious 12″ single that he released, in extremely limited numbers, at Houston’s Day For Night festival, where he played his first American show in eight years. And now, as FACT points out, he’s just thrown a new track with the characteristically unpronounceable title “tnodvood104″ on one of his semi-secret SoundCloud pages. The new track is relatively restrained for Aphex; it’s a subtly pulsating six-minute instrumental that will not rupture the frontal lobe of your brain, even if you listen on headphones. But like every Aphex track, it refuses to sit still, warping in tiny ways throughout. Check it out below.
It would be cool to get a new Aphex Twin album in 2017, but it would also be cool if he just keeps quietly putting new music out into the world, a track at a time.
