Rounds is the third solo album by British electronic musician Kieran Hebden, released under his alias Four Tet on 5 May 2003 by Domino Recording Company. Wanting to make a more personal record, Hebden recorded and produced the album in his North London flat over ten months using a desktop computer and a home hi-fi system.
Rounds is the third album by Four Tet. It was released on 5 May 2003 in the United Kingdom; the United States release came the next day. Two singles were released from the album - "She Moves She" which featured a sample from The Neptune Collection by The Entourage Music And Theater Ensemble and "As Serious as Your Life"), as well as one EP, My Angel Rocks Back and Forth.

For listeners who knew Kieran Hebden from his days in instrumental post-rock outfit Fridge and who might have considered his early recordings under the name of Four Tet as more of a side attraction, his 2003 album Rounds announced the arrival of one of electronic music’s vanguard producers. This reissue adds an excellent live set from the period. And as Pink recently showed, Four Tet’s knack for le melody remains undiluted, no matter how strong and dancefloor-filling his new tracks are. While touring for Rounds, Hebden began to slough off the folk tag of his live shows, pushing at the parameters of what a laptop could do onstage. Recorded live in Copenhagen, it finds Hebden taking the melodies and beanie-nodding rhythms of Rounds further and further out into the cosmos.
As demonstrated on his third record, Rounds, he's one of the few musicians capturing all the promise inherent in computer science - being able to summon, manipulate, and mix any sound imaginable. The record offers something for nearly every audience that could approach it, with a bit of a groove for electronic fans, an obtuse sense of music-making for experimentalists, and a dreamy melodicism sure to endear it to indie pop fans.
