Lithops: “Uni Umit 04” (Uni Umit, 1998 Moikoi)

Jan St. Werner’s debut as Lithops is probably still one of my very favorite things he’s recorded. It’s so understated but not without a sense of humor, far less spastic than where he and Andi Toma went with Mouse on Mars and not half as severe as the Lithops albums that followed. This track might be the closest thing to what he was exploring with Mouse on Mars at the time (circa Autoditacker and Cache Cœur Naif), but it’s a favorite.
