Wow, things are slooooooow on the old WWALT Blog.
I've been meaning to post about this. Any one here check out "The Caretaker"? All I have is his new one, "An Empty Bliss Beyond This World". I'll let you google it youself if you want the guys' life story, but the gist is he makes music using only old 78's of jazz/ballroom music and effects. It creates kind of creepy yet relaxing ambient music.
At first blush it sounded like some guy just playing 78's through a reverb pedal and that's it... but upon repeat listens (and I keep listening...) there is more going on, it's subtle, I honestly don't know how i feel about it. I think i like it. Anyone here check him out? I'd love a second opinion.
Believe it or not, i'd call this one the "single" off the LP.
