ikea_couch one of the greatest things i've heard. a subtle soundtrack for winter walks, something to lay back and contemplate everything to, and even an understanding friend in trying times. as the years go by, i still find myself coming back. Favorite track: All you are going to want to do is get back there.

josh An absolutely beautiful ambient album made only possible by the genius of James Kirby. With tracks ranging from a warm, comfortable familiarity, to a cold, somber, and even eerie feeling. While it's use of sampling may have people find the project seemingly simple at face value, the sheer craftsmanship Kirby puts into this rich and textured experience makes for an unnerving, yet ultimately melancholic masterpiece of a record. Favorite track: Libet's delay.

about

The Caretaker conjures a quieter, more introspective spirit, lost in his own mind amidst a low-lit labyrinth of ever-decaying and antediluvian shellac phrases. Sourced from a mysterious collection of 78s, these vague snippets of archaic sonics reflect the ability of Alzheimers patients to recall the songs of their past, and with them recollections of places, people, moods and sensations.
