Autechre – Amber

Amber is the second studio album by Autechre, released on 7 November 1994 by Warp. It was the first Autechre album to be composed entirely of new material, as their debut album Incunabula (1993) was a compilation of older tracks.

Rob Brown described as “genuinely the first album we put out on Warp”. Designed by Ian Anderson of The Designers Republic, the cover art is a detail of a panoramic photograph of sandstone cliffs in Cappadocia, Turkey, taken by landscape photographer Nick Meers.

In 2008, Rob Brown described listening to Incunabula and Amber again, and commented on “how cheesy they were, and how contrasted our newer ideas are.” Brown clarified his statement in 2013, explaining that the comment “was easily misinterpreted” and that he simply intended to say that the earlier albums “were perhaps more simple [than their more recent work], but not in a shit way.”

All tracks are written by Sean Booth and Robert Brown.
