Four Tet
"Pause" (Vinyl)

Normally an act that I would keep on CD, I found a few of Four Tet's albums on vinyl on one of my trips to New Orleans and I couldn't help picking up one.

The "folktronic" artist (otherwise known as Kieran Hebden) released his second album in 2001. The only other album I own (to date) of his was his fourth, released in 2003.
Not much changed between these two albums.  Tet possesses a rare ability to stretch the listener's tolerances without ever losing our interest.  Any time concepts may become too thin he is ready to step in with a meaty drum loop to ground everything again.  I look forward to exploring more of Mr. Hebden's works.
