The Caretaker

Leyland Kirby has been making fascinating, haunting, and beautiful experimental, ambient, and drone music for a number of years now, and his latest project as The Caretaker may just be his most ambitious and depressing.  It turns out that the artist has been diagnosed with early onset dementia, a subject he has explored with his music before, and he now plans to record six albums detailing the course of his disease and the deterioration of his own mind.  "Everywhere at the end of time" is part one, looping old 78's with distortion effects to create a dreamy and disheartening sound world.  This is going to be heavy.  Stream the album below and get it here.
