So far 2014 has been an excellent year for high quality downtempo electronica with previous releases by Echaskech, Boozoo Bajou and Boards of Canada all nailing it, as does this 8th release by Plaid. While it took some time for me to get into Not for Threes and Restproof Clockwork, this impressed me much on first full listen. Although never as difficult to listen to as much as Warp stablemates Autechre, Aphex Twin or Squarepusher, Reachy Prints is even more accessible than previous stuff. I've now played it through five times over three days and it still sounds good. Almost definitely their best release, which is nice to say considering the sub-par efforts of the previous 2 or 3 releases.

I'm going to keep this one short. If you have listened to Plaid before please read section A, if not then please focus on section B.

Section A: This is one of the best albums of Plaid's career. It is typically playful, creative, exquisite and enjoyable yet with a measure of consistency that surpasses most of their other albums. At 9 tracks in length it is a lot more concise and manageable than albums like 'Double Figure' or 'Trainer' and virtually every song is top quality. The beats are a little more simplistic in places, enabling Plaid to focus their efforts on what they do best, piling on endless layers of squelchy, plinky, playful synths. While Scintilli saw the duo heading in a more 'Autechre' kind of direction, 'Reachy Prints' sees them returning to a kind of 'Boards of Canada'/'Orbital' area, and it works. What amazes me is that they are still able to produce music of this quality after so many years without running out of ideas. If you want to preview a few tracks before you buy then try 'Hawkmoth', 'Martin Lunaire' or 'Tether'. Enjoy.

SECTION B: If you are a fan of slightly abstract electronic music but find the likes of 'Aphex Twin' and 'Squarepusher' a little hard to listen to, then I would definitely recommend a listen to Plaid. This new album is certainly one of their best and it is a fantastic, concise album to start with. The tone of Plaid's music is basically light-hearted and bouncy electronic synths, weaved into an ever changing tapestry. The beats are simple and there are never any lyrics, it is simply just 'music' in its purest form. If you scan briefly through the tracks then you will totally fail to grasp the appeal of this group. You need to listen to one song from start to finish, then move onto an album if you enjoyed it.

Plaid have an incredible body of work behind them and unlike, say, Autechre, a band of similar profile but far harder to really and truly say you like, they've never been easier to listen to and love. What I like about Plaid is that they never pretend. To be 'arder than 'ard, to be darker than dark or deeper than deep. Their joy and playfulness and invention and folly is the real deal, and you get the feeling the surprises and you so often get in their music were theirs too. I think Reachy Prints is as accessible as they've ever been, alongside Heaven's Door OST, and if their beats have simplified since the likes of Spokes, their textures and atmospheres and wonky melodic wonderfulness are forefront in their stead. If you want to build a mad 5-storey moss-roofed extension in your head, get into Plaid. There's nowhere better to start than Reachy Prints.

It sounds like weird Christmas music 1 Dec 2014
By G. Rehm - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A friend of mine said" "It sounds like weird Christmas music". This music exists in a strange audio realm somewhere on the frontier between Autecher and Boards of Canada. I enjoy listening to Plaid as a soundtrack while reading Ian M Banks The Culture books.

an electronic playground with an L.E.D. heart-glow. 8 July 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
8th release from this British duo—Their music feels like a digital patchwork quilt with seemingly unconnected splashes that are woven together with such an intricate finesse that they flow as a perfectly congruent & cohesive soundwave, fluttering and covering the environment with a surprising warmth and texture. Members have played in Repeat & the Black Dog. Plaid masterfully create an electronic playground that provokes physical, mental and emotional reactions. Bouncing music for soft-skinned robots with an L.E.D. heart-glow.

Another Great Plaid Album!!! 3 July 2014
By Pablo G Canton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Plaid for a long time. I love that they change their style throughout their albums. This album is great! If you are a fan of Plaid then definitely pick it up. If you are not then check it out. It is not meant to be a Top 40 album for the masses. Thank you PLAID!!!!
