LONG PLAYER OF THE DAY: Mokira, “Persona” (Type)

The Reason(s) We Can’t Stop Listening: By switching to a strictly analog setup on his first Mokira full-length in five years, Andreas Tilliander achieves one of his spookiest albums yet. Not so much click-hop as a collection of Gas-eous compositions that envelope you like Fripp & Eno, Persona is partly-cloudy experimental music with a blackened ambient techno heart. Recommended for sleep derivation chambers and atmospheric art installations.
