Earthling release

If the new set's anywhere near as fine as the exquisitely subtle & shimmering Vol. 1 (recorded in Bangkok, Berlin, Chicago, Foshan, Kyoto, Philadelpia & Tokyo between 2006 and 2009) you & 2,221 others will be very well rewarded. Hear Vol. 1's rumbling, juddering Berlin piece below.

Less saturnine than the great Aidan Baker, though equally promiscuous in his serial collaborations (including Ryuichi Sakamoto &, especially, Taylor Deupree), Willits is endlessly engaging & beautifully inventive. See previous coverage of his lovely collisions & extensive solo stuff here.

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
