Video: Autechre Second Bad Vilbel Video (Directed by Chris Cunningham 1996)

The unequivocal kings of electronic music, Autechre are planning to drop a new EP for your cute pointy ears next month. Mark down Monday 28 October in your diary now or make a note in one of those new fandangled things you call a “smartphone”.

L-Event is the name of the EP and the cool dudes from Autechre (Rob Brown and Sean Booth) have assured me* it will be a short and sharp 26 minutes and 4 seconds in length.

The EP will be released on CD and vinyl, and a high quality version will also be available for download for those of you who fear to be burdened by cumbersome media. You can fill yourself with glee by pre-ordering the treasure now at Bleep.

L-Event follows Exai their 17-track double-album release from March 2013 which was accompanied by a live stream. Will L-Event be given the same fanfare? Probably not, as it’s just an EP – but we can dream, can’t we?

The cover of L-Event bears a striking resemblance to the cover of Exai. Why? I’m not sure. It may be a Tetris puzzle for you to complete in your spare time.

* Via email correspondence. I didn’t speak to them in person. I’m just on their mailing list. Get a grip, I don’t have their home numbers!
