Stream: Four Tet

Musical repetition serves many purposes. It can be the break, the "get down" point, or it can consume the entire song. Ambient collector Four Tet chooses the latter, as he warps you into a state of careful bliss with calculated blips and a refreshing chilled-out backbeat on "Moma." As the song cycles through various synthesizer hierarchies, where one piece drops out in favor of the other, it is nearly impossible to follow every constituent. Both subterranean and consciousness-driven, the track is reflective of Four Tet's awesome confidence in his ability to transcend, gliding through a journey. As it continues we get a peeled-back drum beat switch and it shimmies subtly towards its end, the one we never figured would come, instead preferring to be awash in perpetually airy minimalist hues.



"Moma" is from the forthcoming benefit album called We Are The Works In Progress (curated by Blonde Redhead's Kazu Makino). It hits record stores on January 10. The album features brand new music from the likes of Deerhunter, John Maus, Interpol, and (of course) Blonde Redhead, with proceeds going towards the victims of Japan's recent tsunami and nuclear disasters.
