Aphex Twin’s soundcloud.com/user18081971 account has waned and waxed in recent weeks. It hovered around 250 total tracks for quite awhile, then dipped down to 236 — which specific tracks disappeared wasn’t entirely clear — and now it’s back up to a high of 260.

Both are simple sequences of layered waveforms, very reminiscent of the gentler moments of Selected Ambient Works Volume II. They’re the first in awhile that felt like natural companions to the earlier 11 pieces from user18081971 that I’ve been compiling as part of a prospective Selected Ambient Works Volume III beta album:
