Kieran “Four Tet” Hebden’s Rounds is a sublime album, a dense pattern of electronic and organic sounds that manages at once to sound busy and tranquil, hip-hop beats pattering around looped guitar chords, a harp embroidering muted electronic drones and percussion.

But the 10th anniversary reissue doesn’t add much to the album itself, just an extra disc with a live recording of a 2004 DJ set whose chief effect is to add the sporadic sound of applause to Hebden’s inventive musical explorations.
