Fat Roland's top ten comfort listens - 4: Autechre's Incunabula
Number 4 in my top ten comfort-listens is Autechre's Incunabula
Album name: Incunabula (rhymes with parabola) (probably)
Who they sound like according to Spotify's recommendations: AFX, Squarepusher, μ-Ziq
Most comforting musical element: Autechre were so different here: just listen to those lingering chords
Least comforting musical element: The week this was released, Mr Blobby entered the charts for the first time - COINCIDENCE?!
What it's like being smothered by (in a good way): Something old and textured, like a very nice elephant or a grandpa dressed as a Christmas tree
Comfort food it should be paired with: A lovely slice of old pizza you found behind your oven (just blow the mould off, it'll be fine)
Public figure I would recommend this album to so they can chill the heck out: All the candidates in the Tory leadership contest, as long as they listened inside their own toilets and didn't come out ever again
What the opposite of this album sounds like: Blobbyyyy, oh Mr Blobby, if only you could make us understaaaand....
