Review by TCat
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Eclectic / Prog Metal / Heavy Prog Team
2 stars 'Autechre' is a band composed of two individuals who do a lot of electronic and ambient remixes along with an impressive discography. 'Tortoise', as most proggers know, is a band of several talented individuals, who, along with being very influential in Post Rock, have experimented with several different genres.

The track 'Ten-Day Interval' is a track from Tortoise's album 'TNT'. It is a song driven by a shimmering, arppegiated percussive instrument with a melody played by a piano and various other keyboards. It is an interesting enough son as it is, rather simple and pleasant.

This release is a two sided single that takes Tortoise's 'Ten-Day Interval' and changes it up into two different remixes which are both done by Autechre. The A-side is called 'Adverse Chamber' which is about 6 minutes long. The percussive arpeggios are deeper as are the other sounds, as if everything is done in a lower register. The piano is less conspicuous, but there are more fuzzy electronic sounds evident. It gives everything a more tropical sound. Nothing really seems to stand out much, it just sort of noodles around. The last minute becomes ambient with electronic sounds that linger. The B-side is called 'To Day Retreival' and clocks in just under 4 minutes. This one takes the piano melody and processes the sound to make it more sustained and drone-like. There are some neat sounds and textures on this one which makes it more interesting. I really like this version as it deconstructs the track and makes it new and fascinating.

Both of these tracks are available on Tortoise's rare tracks collection called 'A Lazarus Taxon'. I would suggest getting that collection as it is easier to obtain than this single since it is not available anymore, unless you want to buy it used at an outrageous price. That makes this single obsolete and only for collectors, even though the b-side is quite good. Those that are interested should search out the rarities collection.
