RIYL: dementia, decay, ambient noise, conceptual art
Label: History Always Favours The Winners
For those who have been paying attention to Leyland Kirby’s Everywhere at the End of Time series, today¬†marks the release of the 5th installment of his 6-part¬†epic into dementia as The Caretaker.¬† For the back story behind the project, read our previous review of Stage 4¬†HERE.
As to be expected, Stage 5 is set in a mind that has fully-developed the curtain of dementia.¬† Gone are any structures or rules.¬† You are trapped in Kirby’s world here, drowning in a sea of swirling cavernous noise.¬† Jarring and terrifying to some, but calming and sublime to others, The Caretaker¬†remains a truly polarizing and perplexing artist.
Listen to the entire stage below and grab some blue vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.¬† “But it’s unlistenable, Dave.¬† When will I even play this?”¬† “Dave, it’s shipping from Boomkat HQ in the UK.¬† Way too expensive!” “F$%& you, Dave.¬† Your taste in music is pretentious and predictable.¬† What a try hard POS.”¬† All valid points, guys, but that won’t stop this thing from selling out within hours.¬† You’ve been warned.
