I'm not sure what you mean by "more upbeat", since upbeat isn't the first word I'd think of when describing Autechre's music. I've always thought of them as "noisy melancholists", with the emphasis on noisy on their latest records.
However, if you're looking for something different and more accessible than the abstract soundscapes on Confield, I'd recommend their first two albums, Incunabula and Amber, plus an EP called Garbage. I especially recommend Garbage, which is a truly astonishing record.
