The Caretaker

In keeping with the bleak, wintry tone of the previous posts, here's some similarly pitched listening to kick-off the 'music' component of this site. Nothing new here, but some of the finest music I've heard in the last few years. The Caretaker is Leyland Kirby's project for grainy slowed-down renditions of thirties ballroom music, named after the Jack Nicholson character in The Shining and the music that one would imagine hearing in the bartender sequence. Kirby now produces similarly moody music on piano and electronics under his own name but they're not as moving as this.
