The last of the 4 Aphex Twin tracks displays his acid brilliance in all it’s glory, with Cock-Ver 10.

Acid drums, acid basslines, excitement. I would list it under brilliance, but it’s not quite as accessible to virgin ears. I know it took me awhile to adjust to these sounds, but the experience is rewarding. Every listen is different. Give it a chance and I promise you’ll thank me later. And when you’re done, go back and listen to Avril 14th (you’ll find it a few posts on this blog back) immediately after, it tops it all off perfectly.

Aphex Twin – Avril 14th by Chris

Aphex Twin is one crazy mofo, and his music can be a little difficult to get into, unless you ease yourself in slowly- like a hot spa.

So over the next few days I’m going to post a just a few tracks, progressively more and more acidic until you’re raving on LSD with no pants on to crazy jungle-like drums and 303 basslines.

But let’s start easy. It’s hard to believe Avril 14th is by the same twisted being that created Come to Daddy. This peaceful piano piece will NOT put you to sleep, but have you relax deeply in your chair, eyes closed without a worry in the world.

Tomorrow: Let’s get your ears prepared for something a little more acidy.
