Listen: Aphex Twin - "Caustic Window" (Full LP Stream)

Unless you have been living in a cave, or in less dramatic fashion simply don't consider yourself a fan, you probably know that the long lost Aphex Twin album under his Caustic Window alias was “shipped” out yesterday  to backers of the hugely successful  Kickstarter campaign.  For those who don't know the history behind the release back in April, a test pressing of an unreleased 1994 Aphex Twin album called Caustic Window surfaced online. It was originally listed for sale for an absurd $13,500 on Discogs, but before it was sold, a Kickstarter was launched where fans could pay for a digital copy of the album; and like myself many did exactly that, raising $67,424 on a goal of $9,300.  Of course roughly ten hours after the music was distributed copies have made their way online for download and streaming for all those to enjoy that found the $12 asking price too steep.

Outside of the tunes, the collection ends off with some charming prank calls, giving a real human touch to the otherwise mysterious and reclusive artist; a perfect way to end off an album that found it's release through such an over-the-top manner.
