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.
