Listen: Carl Stone’s 1196

If you’re like us, you’ve got a lot to do before you split for the holiday. We recommend strapping some headphones on and listening to Carl Stone’s album 1196. Released in 1996, the LP is split into four movements, shaping a symphony of drones and processed samples that feel uncanny, like an alternate universe. Stone traces the middle distance with hum, forms a soft-focus drum line, teases the edges of Detroit techno, and even makes a little jazz band of one. It’s an immersive listen, surrounding you in ever-shifting sound as you get through the day. Give it a spin, and see Stone himself at Big Ears 2019.
