Hello denizens of the Nook,
Since a few of you seemed to enjoy the Caretaker album i uploaded awhile back, i figured i would share some more Caretaker which i just recently u/l for another board. Due to ridiculous amounts of reading right now, i'll just re-post my original disclaimer to the album as well, as to save time.
Happy New Year's ambient buddies.
For anyone who enjoyed The Caretaker album i u/l awhile back, have i got a treat for you. Here is another release from him, and this one is an absolute MONSTER. Literally. As in 6 discs, 72 tracks, 531 MB and a running time of nearly 4 hours!! This is...
The Caretaker - Thereotically Pure Anterograde Amnesia
This is the very definition of a "difficult" album. Despite its length, it must be taken in as a whole. For one thing, the 72 tracks were never meant to be separated, or have names of any kind for that matter. As a means of organizing things digitally, however, he gave them names of "Memory #__", which does help a little. But even still, this thing was never meant to be digested in pieces. As such, it will almost certainly not "click" if listened to in fragments. Which is a damn shame, cuz most people simply don't have that kind of dedication. However, i know some of you guys do. So...cancel all appointments, clear your schedule for an evening, grab yourself some headphones and possibly a beverage (and that was just in preparation for the long download!)
As for the music itself, it sounds like a slow descent into hell. So yeah, enjoy!
Edit: Since the description of "a slow descent into hell" is more than a little vague (and not quite convincing enough to justify such a huge download), i suppose i should specify a bit more as to what the album sounds like. Imagine a Machinefabriek album, slowed to half its normal speed, and played in a cavern hundreds of miles below the earth's surface. The result might sound something like this album. Or not. Whatever.
