Miki Yui ‘Aperio!’ (Hallow Ground)

On first listen, ‘Aperio!’ appears to be a straightforward collection of electronic textures and drones. But just beneath the surface of tracks such as ‘Listening (oneness)’ and ‘Breathing (buds)’, Japanese musician Miki Yui layers subtly unstable tones and ominously shifting pitches. The result of this sunken trickery is that as the album progresses and the ear tunes into her deftness of touch, its eeriness becomes gradually apparent. Probably best not to listen to it while walking through spooky woods.
