The Caretaker: An Empty Bliss Beyond This World

"The Caretaker is the ambient/Twilight Zone brainchild of Northern England soundscapist James Leyland Kirby (also of V/VM). Kirby founded The Caretaker in the mid-'90s, opening a door to a new sonic dimension utilizing his vintage 78 collection -- feels like you plugged your ears into your great-grandparents' memories. Kirby's credits include the score for Grant Gee documentary Patience (After Sebald) and numerous side projects. Discover The Caretaker's supernatural thoroughfare with 'All You Are Going to Want to Do Is Get Back There,' from his 2011 sophomore magnum opus An Empty Bliss Beyond This World" (Phil Ramone and Danielle Evin, "Dog Ears Music," Huffington Post, 7/29/11).
