No, no, it’s not another list. It’s a mixtape, the finest in innovative, future-forward sounds assembled by your pals at Motherboard. You get one track a day from now until the end of the year, and then it all comes together into the best document of the future of music seen from the year 2011 on the internet.

.01 The Field, “Then It’s White”

Willner’s more usual nano-sample slicing/looping is blown way up to macro scale here and we get this piece of sublime ambient pop, a super-pleasant friendly ghost of a song to laze around the inside of your skull for days.
