Now, we're not usually ones to post grainy and low-quality YouTube clips of artists 'performing' 'new' material, mainly because it's not good for the listener to receive the work in that manner and b) it's even worse for the artist for their work to be heard in substandard form. You could argue that we've already made an exception for the recent Le Tigre vs. Christina track.
We're about to make another one, though, with a video clip of some new material from Richard D. James alias Aphex Twin because, well, the audio quality is actually decent, perhaps even a bit more (via Pitchfork). Sounds well good.
The performance was in Metz, France at Centre Pompidou. Cool, huh? What a treat. Anyway, there are a few more Aphex sets in the coming months, including a couple on this very isle. Have a look below to see if any take your fancy...
