The Caretaker – Everywhere At The End Of Time – Stage 2 (2017)

I feel like I’ve been here before, and I suppose that’s exactly the point. Stage 2 of the gargantuan Everywhere At The End Of Time series on dementia sees mostly a rehashing of the themes and tunes of Stage 1. But, if you’re listening carefully, now and then Stage 2’s compositions will throw you out of the loop. Every now and then, through the record crackle and swinging 30s numbers, The Caretaker works in a compositional anomaly; little blips that you wouldn’t necessarily notice if not listening actively. And that, I suppose, is how it really begins.
