Sharon O’Connell reviews Seefeel’s Succour, 18th March 1995
June 12, 2008
I used to listen to this record a lot. More specifically I used to listen to this record a lot between the hours of about 4-7am on Saturday and Sunday mornings. And when I say “listen” I really mean “lie catatonic while the record played in the background”.
But this does the music a disservice. It still holds up. It’s still a great record. I’m listening to it now as a matter of fact. It doesn’t feel especially dated. In fact it sounds a lot like the record everyone keeps hoping Autechre might release after 10 years of unsatisfying glitchronica. A step back perhaps, but sometimes we need to step back in order to move a little further forward.
