LONG PLAYER OF THE DAY: The Field, ‘Looping State of Mind’

The Artist/Album: The Field, Looping State of Mind (Kompakt, 2011)

The Reason(s) We Can’t Stop Listening: More locked grooves and gorgeous/grandiose tone paintings from the Swedish sample surgeon who redefined trance music for anyone who’d rather die than be caught with a Tiësto-clogged hard drive. As simple as it all sounds on the surface, every last track is an incredibly immersive, downright transcendent experience, helped in part by the iridescent instrumentation of Axel Willner’s ever-evolving live band. Floating hasn’t felt this good in forever.
