"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Don't mock

Revisitations dept: you can't have forgotten this drowsy, blurry masterpiece - a highlight of the dizzying run of indisputable & near-classics (also including this, this, this, this & this, plus rereleases/vinyl pressings like this, this & this, & this) that made Type last year's stand-out label - already? Even when drowsy & blurred LMYE struggles to nominate a more satisfying, more perfectly shaped member of that brilliant Type relay than Persona - its flooding warmth, its tantalising slowness, its complexity of mood (somewhere beyond melancholy or yearning or resignation)...

You'd hope it doesn't, of course. But if the five years it took Andreas to follow up predecessor Album (stream both releases in full below) has now to be repeated, so be it. As a richly throbbing, scratchy sketch recently SoundClouded in his own name (also streaming below), the Mokira experiments covered earlier this year (here & here) or a relentless pre-Persona one-off all show, there'll be riches to savour whichever version of himself (including countless other guises - Sheet Fig, anyone?) he opts to display...

"A day and night in the studio with some new effects that had to be tested. I'll finish this track later on this autumn. Too hot to make ambient right now."

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