Aphex Twin returns with a new album next week (September 22) after a 13-year exodus. If you've read our review, you'll know it's a hyper-intricate electronic melody-crush overflowing with all the manic ideas and ADHD beats we've come to love from the Cornish raver. The moment I knew the record was gonna be great was when I saw the hilarious Kemp Folds-style press shot accompanying the album, suggesting that across his time in the wilderness, Richard D James had lost none of the mischevious, piss-taker humour that's so key to his music.
