On a sub-label of Tokyo’s Mule Musiq, but embodying a very European aesthetic, My Favorite Things–which offers tracks by Adolf Noise (a.k.a. DJ Koze), Lawrence, Tony Lionni, Minilogue, Loco Dice, and more–begs the question du jour, “What is minimal?” In the strictest sense, minimal is arrangements without distractions, free of stray tones, and that is not always the case here. Some of these 11 heavily atmospheric cuts–most previously unreleased, or at least unreleased on CD–favor tribal underpinnings, while others are streaked with spectral imaging. These tracks teem with micro detailing.
