Plaid – “Scintilli” – [Warp Records, Ltd.]
Plaid is an electronic music duo out of London made up of Andy Turner and Ed Handley. Not only do they make their own music but they have done remixes for many artists, most notably Bjork who also has collaborated with them. Every song on this album sounds completely different. From dub step (track 2) to something that sounds like an homage to Dr. Who’s opening title (track 4), to a lyrical almost balletic piece (track 6). They even have a song called “African Woods” (track 11) that sounds like Miami in the 80’s. If you don’t know where to start with this release may I suggest “Upgrade” (track 12) as it sounds akin to something you would hear while watching TRON.
