Your Daily Lick: Mark Applebaum

Sock Monkey (Innova Recordings)

Fourteen-minute opener “Magnetic North” emanates creaks, drips, and lasers, courtesy of Applebaum’s “mouseketier electroacoustic sound-sculpture.” In the extensive liner notes, he stresses the importance of “playing” music like children instead of “performing” as adults. This distinction tells you all you can know about Sock Monkey without actually listening.
