APHEX TWIN Window Licker


aphextwinFor those who’ve followed his career, the musical dementia of Richard D. James, the man behind Aphex Twin, is old news. He’s always remained a good light-year ahead of his contemporaries, and this new single is no exception. Fresh from “Come To Daddy,” his demonic, maniacal breakbeat experiment, “Windowlicker”‘s electro drum kicks, warped vocal samples and sleazy, erotic ambiance connote images and emotions alien to James’s previous compositions. Erratic sound bites pervade both that track and the disjointed second cut, “Formula.” “Nannou” completes the EP with its soothing music box melody and minimal rhythmic structure. When placed in a CD-ROM drive, the CD contains technology that provides Web access to a video. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
