Welcome to hell, well maybe not hell, but a hellish soundscape, produced by Autechre. The revered British duo has released a new song for Adult Swim’s singles program called “sinistrail sentinel” and the title captures the mood entirely.
The nearly 12-minute song is dark and menacing, with percussion echoing around the listener, dark, intermittent bass stabs, piercing high-pitched effects and haunting low sounds that come and go like you are walking through a hellish haunted house and they jump out at you indiscriminately with menace.
Just last month, a monster playlist of over 13 hours of videos was found on their YouTube page, which has kept their content hungry fans satiated, one would assume. Now they have a new song to help close out the year.
