Just bought… The Caretaker “Persistent repetition of phrases”

caretaker persistent repetionThis weekend I was in Amsterdam visiting Christian. He had earlier mentioned that I should listen to The Caretaker [Myspace]. Already within the first or second track I knew I had to buy “Persistent repetition of phrases”.

The record places me in my grandparents silent apartment. A gramophone crackles while mild beautiful piano pieces are played somewhere between 1920 and 1940. And sometimes it’s a cornet along with samples.
One of the tracks is haunting as if it was the score to a cemetery. But mostly the tunes are dreamy from a time long ago.

Christian speaks about records that fill a gap in the collection. I have nothing equally.

A good review can be read at Rum-soaked review. I bought the record directly from the record company for $16 .
