By Jon Brown VINE VOICE on 6 May 2008
Format: Audio CD
after the joyous explosion that was 'Everything Ecstatic' and various recordings made with jazz drummer Steve Reid, it was a safe bet to say that wherever Kieran took us next it certainly wouldn't be predictable. Hearing this latest ep/mini-album still comes as something of a surprise though...there are unmistakable bursts of that Four Tet sound, in particular the jazz tinged percussions that put you in mind of old Alice Coltrane or Pharoah Sanders albums...but largely 'Ringer' marks a leap back in time by Kieran to an era when IDM was at its peak.
so, how does it sound? rather bloody good actually!! the title track is the standout, building slowly and subtley on ambient waves that take the listener well past the 5 minute mark until it peaks with some heavy drumming. it's a track you lie down to and lose yourself in. after that, there's nothing quite as immediate but it's all still entrancing none the less. Swimmer massages the brain gently and actually puts me in mind of early Seefeel recordings, it has that same lovely chiming vibe to it...Wing Body Wings gurgles blissful beats and manages to make its drums sound wrapped in cotton wool.
all in all well worth £5 of your hard earned cash, and a surprising, interesting and above all enjoyable diversion on the increasingly unpredicatble path Four Tet's traversing!

I was once quite seasonally adjusted when it came to music. Spring and summer inspired me to listen to more notionally natural textures - let's say alt-country, Americana or folk - while the onset of winter used to find me needing something more machine-driven. In recent years I've been rather unfaithful to electronica, having flirted provocatively with other music forms. I may have even said somewhere on this site that electronica is dead. Well, fool me. Recent albums by Fever Ray and worriedaboutsatan have got me all excited about the possibilities of electronic music again, and completely out of season too. In order to catch up a bit, I've just ordered Boards of Canada's `Campfire Headphase' and now Four Tet's 2008 EP `Ringer', admittedly both happy compromises on my seasonal requirements given the preponderance of `organic' textures in both.

`Ringer' was hyped as a trend-bucking statement of intent by Kieren Hebden, given that the eponymous eight-minute track has Orbital written all over it, making it less easily to categorise as folktronica, a term he is known to hate. But for all the propulsiveness and glimmering synths, there is a hint of Glastonbury `93 about `Ringer' that gives it a whiff of the bucolic. If `Ringer' is a homage to the Hartnoll brothers then the other three tracks that comprise the EP explore looser, jazzier territory: there is the suggestion of the semi-improvised grooves that Hebden has been utilising to increasingly impressive effect on his Steve Reid collaborations. If you like this, you certainly should check out 2008 collaboration `NYC'. I particularly enjoy listening to these unhurried mood pieces as an antidotal soundtrack to a trip to Carrefour, an Analgoue Bubblebath for the brain.

On Ringer, a generously portioned EP, Hebden dials back his frenetic eclecticism, instead turning out ambitious yet danceable techno. And not unlike a Towers of Asia record, it's a hugely rewarding and interesting listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it another listen! 5 July 2009
By Jonathan Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This record is a grower. I was ambivalent about it the first time, now I love it. "Ringer" in particular - it's a bit like Rhythm is Rhythm's "Strings of Life", not in its sound, but in its extraordinary restraint. The moment when the live drum set kicks in is just astonishing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relax a Bit 13 Mar. 2009
By A. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I enjoy this little CD, but not because I'm listening intently to find something, or catch some Four Tet similarity to anything. What is 'Techno' anymore, anyway? This EP is excellent listening to view the world, from your car window or bicycle or the Metro on the way home.

2.0 out of 5 stars Get Out Your Glow Sticks 3 Jun. 2008
By D. Waldron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I wish I had listened to this album before I had bought it. I'm a pretty big Four tet fan, and I didn't think I needed to listen to Ringer to ease my fears of not liking it. That was a mistake.

This album is straight techno. I'm not saying that techno is bad, but it's not what Keiren is known for, or what he excels at. It's incredibly repetitive, and minimalistic.

If your into the techno scene, you may like this. If your checking out Four tet for the first time you may want to check out Rounds or Everything Ecstatic. Lastly, if your a Four tet fan, beware.
