Hear Aphex Twin’s First New Song in 13 Years
Aphex Twin has premiered his first new song in 13 years with Syro cut "minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix]." Though it's got an unwieldy title, the song is a lightweight bit of melty robot electro, utilizing some vocodered chants and a beat that starts off reminiscent of Radiohead's "Idioteque."
The track was announced via the same garbled computer speak as the album's incredible press release: "Heard for the first time on Radio 1’s Zane Lower night, can now listen to the album track minipops 67 [120.2][source field mix] This is the first dong fore 13 years between the publication of the first a formal music."
