to_deviate A subtle, repressed version of the chaos of EATEOT. It holds back, and doesn't show you it's full power - this subtlety is why I prefer this, instead. Favorite track: Libet's delay.

Davie Donna A timeless masterpiece that will be listened and re-listened to deep into the future. An album that overwhelms you with sadness and beauty. Full of nostalgic, crackling, and haunting decay. It's as if your memories were a photograph and it's being slowly consumed by fire. Favorite track: I feel as if I might be vanishing.

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.
